Coming Round the Bend

I strongly suspect that the sudden change in temperatures, combined with the end of the two day post-Thanksgiving shopping spree, has turned more than one local mind to thoughts of Christmas and the end of 2012.

And looking ahead typically includes looking behind as well. And what a year it's been! Think…

Charter Communications

OK. Let me see if I have this right.

Supporters of a "No" vote on the City Charter (and therefore to retain it) purchased gigantic chunks of space in today's Galion Inquirer. Because media is required to sell those ads at the same rate as a commercial payor, it is reasonable to assume that that ad buy cost them at least $500-750, possibly much more - for ONE DAY of exposure.

From Non-Plussed to Plussed: A Quick Look at Google Plus

Yesterday evening, I took the leap from “non-plussed” to “plus.”

If you’re not a social media junkie or online news publisher, you may not know to what I refer. It’s Google Plus, the new alleged Facebook competitor that burst onto the scene some weeks ago – just about the time I started clamoring for an invitation, in fact. Invitations are notoriously difficult to come by; you allegedly have to “know people” or at least…

Bye Bye, Borders

I freely admit my obsession with the tactile.

From my earliest memories I have been both a newspaper and a book junkie. I suppose that I was a bit unusual (OK, friends and family, I will admit to some continued quirks and idiosyncrasies) in that I was known to borrow books from the Galion Public Library not only because of…
