"We don't see this kind of thing very often," is the quote of the day from the sheriff's office, via Reuters at Yahoo. Not exactly man-bites-dog, but offbeat -- and a good example of a second-day lead for my students.
In 2013 this Boblog blog became my space for writing about music, as well as keeping up to date on the "blogger" system. My other blogs are JHeroes (old-time radio's portrayal of journalists) & Other Journalism, about news, journalism education, WordPress, and journalist characters in film & fiction. It's the successor to an older site archived at stepno.com/oldblog. In between those sites, I was using this Blogspot account for both school and non-school postings, but from 2007-13 I kept teaching & research things on the other blogs, with personal, quirky and miscellaneous posts on this one.
I have taught journalism, media studies and Web production at Radford University in Virginia, the University of Tennessee and Emerson College. Previously, I was at Nando.net, The University of North Carolina, Soundings Publications, Ashton-Tate, Wesleyan University, and The Hartford Courant.
