Some things to take your mind off… well, you know what.
If you’ve got some spare time, they’re looking for a few good bloggers over at From The Rumble Seat. Qualifications don’t appear to be too daunting:
Our ideal candidate:
- Has strong knowledge about Georgia Tech, both current and historical.
- Possesses strong writing skills.
- Has a nose for news, both in knowing what is important and identifying where to find it.
- Is able to write in line with our best practices for growing an audience.
- Is able to write and publish quickly while remaining accurate.
- Is a self-starter who can work with minimal direction.
- Possesses solid communication skills.
- Is comfortable working in a virtual environment.
I don’t see anything there about institutional loyalty, which means YOU CAN DO THAT!
Not willing to make the commitment? Well, at least you can take to the comments section here and suggest a few topics they might want to explore. Just tryin’ to help a blogger out, man.
Sometimes the problem with posting noxious stuff on message boards and blog comment threads isn’t that recruits will read it. It’s that somebody will figure out who the author is. And that’s not a good thing when the author is a sitting judge.
An Arkansas circuit judge has called off his campaign for higher office after he confessed to making what some deemed to be offensive comments under an alias on the LSU fan message board, TigerDroppings.
A political blogger first suggested on Monday (March 3) that Arkansas Circuit Judge Mike Maggio was behind the pseudonym “geauxjudge” in a post on his website, Blue Hog Report, according to The Associated Press. Maggio acknowledged the comments were his on Wednesday (March 5), apologized and ended his campaign for a seat on the Arkansas Court of Appeals.
Sitting in his courtroom’s gotta be a blast.
“These comments are not a reflection of who I am.” Is there an Internet troll who doesn’t believe that with all his or her heart?
If you’re facing the same weather conditions I am, it’s not like you’ve got anything better to do right now than to slip into the buffet line.
