What's this blog really about?

You may notice a variety of topics here - from business, to charity promotion, even to local news, but the primary reason this blog was created was to alert readers to the hostile atmosphere and sexual harassment at The Danville Register & Bee. The readers and creator of this blog want a FULL FRONT PAGE apology in the Danville Register & Bee, plus the disciplining of those individuals involved. Until then, we'll continue to post regular updates. To tolerate THIS kind of behavior by a major media network is intolerable. And this isn't just ONE instance. Media General has been sued nationwide for racism and sexism, yet they CONTINUE to keep the offenders employed. Why? And why am I doing this? TRUTH compels me.

Going public

Competition is on the horizon....Owners of the Piedmont Shopper appeared before city council Tuesday to ask to be recognized as a newspaper. They aren't the only ones. At least two other folks in the area are seriously considering staking out territory in a market filled with unhappy advertisers.

Competition is good. With the glut of laid-off writers, photographers, graphics folks and circulation people from the Danville Register & Bee, it won't be hard to find good help either.
