Thurman Speaks About 'Plugged In' To Get Better

I visisted the Arizona Republic's "Plugged In" blog on 29 December 2005 and the most recent posting had the sub-title: "NOT YOUR FATHER'S BLOG" (written in all upper-case). The blog posting was dated "Nov. 28, 2005 01:19 PM," but I suspect the poster, "Plugged In" editor Phil Boas, simply made an error. The posting read as follows.

   "Plugged In is undergoing an extreme makeover in the next 
    two weeks. When we return to pluggedin.azcentral.com on 
    Monday, Jan. 9, you'll scarcely recognize us. We're going 
    to get a lot better."

Item to Mr. Boas--just a single improvement will make 'Plugged In' a "lot better." In other words, no matter what changes you implement, your blog can't get any worse than it was.

'Plugged In' would be vastly improved if Jana Bommersbach was removed as a "contributor." In addition, I don't know why Joanie Flatt's personal life is "news worthy." Instruct her to start her own blog.

In a world where I thought nothing is easy, improving 'Plugged In' is easy.
