I saw this headline on CNN.com today: Raul Castro chosen as president by Cuba’s National Assembly Here’s an example of how the headline would have appeared if I was the editor on duty at the time: Raul Castro “chosen” as “president” by Cuba’s “National Assembly”
Congratulations to my friend and occasional co-conspirator Lance Dutson, who announced today he’s taking a job as Director of Internet Strategy for Maine Senator Susan Collins’ re-election campaign. As I can attest but many already know, Lance is razor-sharp and as forward on the curve as anybody I’ve met when it comes to seeing, exploring, […]
Many blogs have already noted Tuesday’s amazingly quick, and quick-witted, video response by Senator Fred Thompson to the re-surfaced Michael Moore’s open letter. Fred Thompson answers Michael Moore.

This time around (major version 3 by my account), I’m taking a backseat and operating primarily as publisher while two new bloggers, Chris Hata and Mike Faulkingham, take over daily posting duties. Please head over to the new Moorelies.com and check […]
