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.

Get off the phone and work Terry

Quit yakking and hang up and manage Terry. The Register & Bee "forgot" to run yet another ad and people are blogging about it - not just me. The Dalton Family wasn't happy either.

They write: Barry had an Open House for his Danville property on Sunday, but the Register & Bee forgot to run the ad so no one came! Big disappointment.

Yeah, well - lots of people disappointed in a lot of things about The Danville Register & Bee. How did YOU get your job? Seems like a lot of people around there get promoted because of who they know, not what they know. Seems like if YOU were qualified to run things you would be running them. Hang up the phone. Manage. Rinse. Repeat. You'll figure it out.

Hi! Thanks for your comment on my blog- we are getting the refund for our ad, but it doesn't cover the time lost on a Sunday afternoon we had set aside for the Open House. It doesn't make up for the landscaper we paid to come touch-up the yard, the gas we used to travel from NC to Danville for the day, or the church Homecoming meal we skipped so that we wouldn't be late for our potential buyers. The Register & Bee is a joke, and for me, always has been. When I was an Averett University Theatre major, they misquoted me several times in their pieces on our shows, and I wasn't the only one! The writing is like a fifth grade journalism project (this is gracious), the editing is nonexistant, and the coverage is unprofessional and biased. Good luck in your endeavor!
