Ann Arbor Area Community News
The “Michigan Daily” has had a whopping five weblogs for a while now; which I thought was a good idea, more or less. Splitting the focus among blogs for chief editor (“The Editor’s Page”), opinion (“The Podium”), news (“The Wire”...sounds like TV show), arts (“The Filter”...keeps out tar and nicotine, perhaps), and sports (“The Game”...sounds like rapper), Daily bloggery offers multiple voices and choices.
However, comparatively few people have utilized the Daily blogs (one big exception: “Podium” Suhael Momin’s 9/26/05 Conservative coming out day , with 69 comments); which is unfortunate, since it was a timely modernization for the D to create them: one of the “crown jewels” of J-Z Pesick’s time at the top.
Speaking of Pesick, looks like he was the last commenter (12/21/05) on the “Ed’s Page”; what happened to Donn “M.” Fresard? The Podium, too, is stuck back in January. However, the Wire has been hopping lately; Two lives in fifteen days (about the parking structure suicides), Students Want Minority-Focused Newspaper , Granholm falls hard in new poll , and City offering free smoke detectors , in the last three days alone.—AND all by reporters named Miller!!
“Ice Dancing is officially the worst sport in history. ...”
In other words, the D-blogs are heating up a little, and the momentum may continue if they are lucky.
So, do check out the Daily blogs, whether “daily” or weekly. They, too, provide “Arbor updates” in their own way.
