Reading some of the latest – actually, most – posts on da po’ blog, I don’t see a lot of constructive criticism. I *do* see a lot of negative vibes being sent. I don’t want that to be the contribution of this blog.
Having said that, sending negative vibes seems to be where I am right now. But I’m working on it.
When I get lost on my mission, I like to read over Edward R. Murrow’s address to the 1958 RTNDA Convention. Particularly this comment:
This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires and lights in a box. There is a great and perhaps decisive battle to be fought against ignorance, intolerance and indifference. This weapon of television could be useful.For the NOLA blogging community and its friends, our instrument is the internet.
Let us inspire.
