My take on the mainstream media, especially the newspaper biz. As a former long-term Dallas Metroplex resident, this is often focused on the sometimes good, and the often not-so-good (compared either to what it could be or what it used to be) of A.H. Belo's primary publication, The Dallas Morning News.

‘Weblog’ not ‘blog’ guaranteed to make paper website look old-school
So, a weekly newspaper group has had a website since, oh, 2002, 2003. It’s finally entering the blogosphere, and what does the newspaper’s webmaster do?
He calls the front-page link Weblogs.
Weblog as a term, other than in the mouths of people who still wear pocket protectors in their shirts, died out about the same time five or six years ago that this newspaper group started its website.
