Took a few hours off to go teach -- that other thing I do. Back at Newsplex. We're crusin'. It's like being back at the wire service, only better because we can augment the quick stories with links to a lot of other info. "News resourcers" (think news librarian with information biceps) are invaluable. Nothing like being able to say, "Hey, we need some pictures of Edwards' bus to go with this snippet on kindergartners visiting the bus." And she comes up with some and voila. Had a couple cases where teams went out and said "there's no story" -- the old "There was no story about the fair because the fairgrounds were flooded." But it's a learning experience for everyone.
