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.

Danville's Backyard Burgers closes for good

Backyard Burgers - MY favorite place in town to get a great sandwich, closed it's doors for good today at 3:00 p.m., according to readers who stopped by there for lunch.

I'm REALLY sorry to see them go. Rumor has it they won't be the last restaurant to leave.

I was just over there and wondered why they looked so dark. This is sad. I love BYB.

They had great food. Going to miss em.Becky broke the news of the closing last Sunday Dec 28,2008 the day they closed here on the blog.WBTM 1330 reported it at 7am.the next morning on the radio news and on their website and as usual three days later on Wednesday Dec.31 the rag Register & Bee finally managed to do a writeup and outside photo.Three days late and 3 dollars short as usual.Old news by then as usual.Surprised it wasnt another AP story as usual.Thats why we dont subscribe to the paper.
