Al Thompkins, Journalist

I love Al's Morning Meeting daily emails.

Wednesday's topic was 'Interactive Storytelling' and he writes: Occasionally, people ask me for examples of great online storytelling. Here are some of my current favorites, which might make for an interesting brown-bag lunch discussion in any newsroom.

He goes on to list all kinds of interesting sites, it's worth checking out if you have a little spare time.

It's worth reading Ricardo Pimentel's article titled, 'A Matter of Grammar and Law'. It's about immigration and the nuances he thinks journalists should not ignore.

A taste: Yes, we're talking about illegal immigration. But illegal is a modifier, not generally a noun. And presence without the required papers, under current law, is a civil violation, not a criminal one.
