Time for a relaunch

This blog has been inactive for the better part of two years, but it's time to refocus and redevelop this into a solid resource for those with a passion for journalism, and particularly those with a passion for grammar and AP Style.
Pretty much everything I am involved with will be posted here, but I promise all of it will be relevant to mass media and college student media going forward. Keep an eye out for the posts and updates!

Even more on the Sun-Times debacle

Jack Lail, a journalist I respect, has written a short missive on his blog about this debacle. I encourage you to read it:

Does the audience even need journalists -- or photojournalists?

He makes an obvious statement that I think can't be repeated enough: "There's a vast difference between between a profesisonal photojournalist and someone who takes pictures."
