Ken Otterbourg’s post about race, reporting, and why there’s no National White Theatre Festival in the U.S.

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

I used to work for the Winston-Salem Journal, and I still tune in every once in a while to the blog its managing editor Ken Otterbourg writes. Ken wrote about the newspaper’s coverage of the National Black Theatre Festival, and the feedback he gets from the town. He wrote this paragraph, which handles gracefully the […]

Bombed my first black diamond last week

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

Okay, so I’m still a noob with all the snowboard lingo, but this I know: I stuck / bombed / went down my first black diamond run last week. It was the Last Hoot run at Keystone, and I carved the heck outta all but one really steep part of it. Awesome, right? Sure. My […]

So, last night (Sunday) I announced the launch of HappyJournalist on my online journalism blog. The site’s a response to the AngryJournalist confessional, and so far, so good — 24 people have said what makes them happy, and hey, Gawker picked it up too. I launched the site just in time, too — a Missouri […]

New National, and storytelling

Friday, May 25th, 2007

This photo is of me in the bedroom holding the album that the National released this week. The National is a band that chooses words well. The quote below is from an article in the New York Times. Researchers have found that the human brain has a natural affinity for narrative construction. People tend to […]

He’s got six big ideas

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

This month is poetry month (among other things that are being celebrated all month long I’m sure). This month I found a book of Robert Bly’s poetry. I found Robert Bly through this fascinating lit mag from North Carolina called The Sun, which came to me via Sarah. So yeah, I found the book, which […]

Order of the Occult Hand

Friday, January 26th, 2007

The hand brushed past my radar in the newsroom in Winston-Salem, it was clever, and then I forgot about it. For some reason it struck my memory tonight. The Order of the Occult Hand has no president, board, or member roll. It’s existed for more than 40 years. I haven’t joined, and odds are against […]

Some observations on this whole Darrent Williams murder thing

Thursday, January 4th, 2007

First, I didn’t know Williams. I’m not religious about football. The guy died 150 feet from where I live, and I guess that makes me feel weird / closer to his passing. Here are some of the things I’ve noticed since his death: People are definitely, definitely still racist. This event kind of brought them […]
