I hope my punctuation is correct in the title. Please be correct. Also I would like to point out that I, like Danni, now know that crack-cocaine whore is not to be capitalized. Seriously, before this class started I was in no way shape or form interested in taking the class. But because it was something I had to take I put my big boy pants on and did it. Now as the class is ending I realize that I really enjoyed the class, this isn't fluff, I did enjoy this class. I now have this new appreciation for journalist and the work they do. As a fan of the print news-actually internet new sites but it still isn't TV-i never really thought about what went into the paper on a daily basis all the deadlines, and the fact checking, etc. The examples you gave us to do and all the countless crime articles I wrote really helped me understand how talented journalist are. I won't lie and say i enjoyed all the wb's but I will admit I did enjoy the mock press conferences-even the one where I shut the door on President Boyle. I really appreciated how much time and energy you put into the Janet Morton, Martin-whatever her last name is/was crime story, I think that the way you created the scenarios because I felt that the way that class was run with the different actors and the time constraints, that would probably be as close as I ever would get to having to cover, write and report on anything ever. So thanks for that experience. I also am glad that this semester did not kill you-you had us a little worried, but I am glad you are A-ok. This is also my final blogging portfolio (it really is-wow), as a parting gift I would like to post all my prior portfolios:
