Poor guy. From the top(ish) to the dreggiest of dregs (it's a Blogspot blog!) in a month and a half.
I've been waiting for him.
No, it's not bad. Anyone familiar with Temple's writings, especially on his old Rocky blog, will know what to expect: "What journalism schools should be teaching"; "Why multipart series are even more important to newspapers today"; "How wrong can newspaper critics get?" (Answer: very.)
I liked a couple of posts (there are only five or six yet), including one asking "Why" (John, vary your titles a little, for G-d's sake) newspapers still run headlines implying they're first with a story when it's been on electronic media all day.
But he's very serious. He'll be teaching soon, I imagine.
(h/t LS, who sent it to me long enough ago that I could have beaten Michael Roberts (yes, the Michael Roberts) on the story. I've been busy.)
