Early Edition - Gone Mild?

Hearne Christopher has a piece in this morning's paper about the Wheel Drive-in closing. Gone Mild readers knew about it 14 months ago.

On Sunday, the Star wrote about the renaissance of Troost. Gone Mild visitors read about it 18 months ago.

Unlike some bloggers, I don't believe that this shows that the Star is ripping me off for story ideas - they're not. I am just wishing that my prescience was focused on the business page or the lottery results instead of the fluff.

What can one say? You're just the Brookside, all-about-town gadfly.

I mean that in the most complimentary way. Not only do you know and hang out at the "in" eateries and watering holes, but you are well placed in many circles where the news is swirling about (even city hall)...certainly before The Star finally trips over it.

They are becoming yesterdays news themselves. Not only slow on the pick up, but when they are handed a great piece of info, rather than run with it and possibly be an instrument of change, or dispensing worthwhile news...they drop the ball. They are becoming more and more that old saw...a day late and a dollar short.

Is it really any wonder that blogs are becoming the preferred source to go to for moment to moment commentaries on EVERYTHING...real or imagined?!

You know if you keep scooping them, they may stop publicizing you on the editorial page. Maybe you should toss a big story their way just to show you still care.

Dan...you sent me to the dictionary today..."prescience" the ability to predict the future.

Cool...

Dan,
Do you have a hermetically sealed mayonnaise jar on your front porch?

Any prognostications for Nov 08 or the stock market? Speaking for your fans we promise not to tell anyone...
