Know Your Spotsy?
Wow, the blog has been lively lately! There’s been a lot of discussion–and debate–and thanks for sharing your perspectives and participating. As the mom of two boys, I have to squelch my instincts to smooth things over. But certainly there’s room for healthy debate. No one has crossed this line, but just in case, I do want to remind you not to accuse people of things you can’t prove. Again, that’s just a precaution. We’re in a whole new world of journalism these days, and while I spent quite a bit of time studying for the demanding exams in Communications Law, most of you have not. (Count yourselves lucky; this course was so rough that everyone waited for their senior year to take it in the hopes that it would be taken off the requirements. I was the only freshman to sign up for the class and, all semester, I was known simply as “the freshman.”) It might sound like common sense, and I apologize if it is. I’d just rather be careful.
In the meantime, here’s a fun trivia quiz. It’s not much of a challenge; I’ve spent days trying to write a code that would integrate the quiz into my blog, only to discover there’s a plugin to do all the work for me. So I wasted most of my time instead of looking for good trivia. I hope you enjoy it anyway, and now that I know the secret, we’ll have better questions in the future. And, if you have any random county trivia, send it my way: firstname.lastname@example.org or 540/735-1973.
