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.

Seven of 27 remain
A look back at a 2000 Christmas card shows the attrition rate at The Danville Register & Bee. Only seven of these 27 employees remain today. Armand "Mr. Hormone" Nardi, is front and center...The woman to Nardi's right has since died.. several have retired, a few went on to better jobs, the nightside staff wasn't pictured, others have quit because of ways they were being treated, five were terminated. Now, you have to ask yourself, WHY the high termination rate? Are they that poor at interviewing that they hire so many folks who need to be terminated? Or are those who are terminated unwilling to quit or be forced out?
