If you are a person who can take a step back and look at everything around you, you might find that being in this line of work you hold a front-row seat to a lot of pretty spectacular events.
My family has this vision of what I do — running around, camera in hand trying to find the next big story. My husband, on the other hand, I think believes I go around talking to random people and trying to find out what is going on that we’re missing here at the paper.
But the truth is it is a combination of both ideas plus covering what we knew was already scheduled.
Our two cents’ worth and final thoughts on the Bowl Championship Series title game experience:
• In his after-the-game press conference, Head Coach Les Miles said that LSU’s drubbing by Alabama will be a “bitter pill to swallow.”
Yep, it sure will and for a long time, at least until the 2012 season kicks off. And if next year doesn’t go smoothly, you know there will be observers around Tiger Nation saying that the 21-0 title game defeat to the Tide will be one of the reasons (psychological or otherwise).
Question: Our 13-year-old daughter has been mature for her age from early on. She takes advanced classes and makes straight A’s. She’s also very talented musically. We think, however, that she has become a media addict. She spends entirely too much time in her room on her computer, mostly using social media. When she’s not on the computer, she’s using her phone to text her friends. We’ve asked her to limit her use, but our words are falling on deaf ears. What approach would you recommend short of cutting off the Internet and taking away her phone? She needs a computer to do her school work.
