7:40 a.m. -- Playing around with something different. With my time availability dwindling and likely to dwindle further, I'm going to try to get quick hits up from time to time for whatever interest they may have, but mainly to provide a continuing and occasionally refreshed forum for those who care enough to leave a comment.
The usual articles and thought pieces will continue to appear as I'm able to get to them. I invite anyone with a hankerin' to write a piece to drop me an email, and, of course, I will be pirating emails to generate content for this space either anonymously or credited (with permission only).
In any given day, there may be added material that will be headed by the time it was posted, thrown up as things occur to me.

I was out of town over the weekend. Did The Orphanage comment on last week's technical disasters (I understand they had some technical challenges of their own)?
Did George DeJohn and the TeeBox have a real handoff on Saturday? (The prior weekend the handoff was torpedoed by the worse TeeBox transmission quality ever, and the week before that, I 1think, was the George D-Craig R tiff.)
Does anyone have any information on Greg Williams's medical condition?

1:35 p.m. -- We hear from folks who think I'm (and some commenters are) overblowing the whole Ticket technical crisis. Entirely possible they're right. The show does manage to go on, mostly.
But the commenters here and to the site that T4 directs us to (see comments to this post), including a well-known local broadcaster, makes the same point I made a week or so ago -- when things go bad and good people start to leave, everything suffers. Not just the ability to stick plug A into port A, but morale, initiative, the desire to do well, the desire to come to work every day. It shows in the product, and, eventually, it will show in the cast of characters who emerge on the air.
