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.

Send your toilet paper now!!

Thanks to the reader who sent this photo in. Yes...it is sad how Mrs. Grant's "Register & Bee" has become a mere shadow of what good news once was....

How much longer until the main building is closed? The basement (Unless Steve Kaylor has decided to rent out the rooms by the hour for the employees who think the newsroom is really a dating service) is empty. Other newspapers in the area have been "absorbed" and well...the Register & Bee can't really afford to keep the bathrooms open. They sent a memo around telling employees to use only the ONE bathroom for men/women so they could save on "cleaning and maintenance costs." How much does it cost to scrub a toilet? Hmmmm...please send the R&B a roll of toilet paper...or drop off a roll. Maybe if Danville covers the cost of their butt wiping they can afford another reporter! Seriously! At 75 cents a roll...who knows. We could rejuvenate the paper for less than a $1 per person!
