Aha! It was bound to happen. Now we've switched
sides Matt. I would not have centered either of the
two latest features. Both post-mortem analysis of the
events. My main argument is that both of these play
to a very very small audience at a time when we are
attracting worldwide attention. Both of these
articles are important for a certain community, and I
wish there were a third way that we could highlight
them to create discussion for that community, but in
light of the fact that the campaign is now beginnin
and we have for a fleeting moment, the country's
attention, greg palasts article made alot more sense
for today, and it was only up for an hour or two
before these narrow focus ones went up.
Please notice that I am not highlighting the fact that
these do not follow current guidelines because I think
they are important, and I understand where matt is
coming from putting them up. If either of these
articles addressed the larger picture of the protests,
instead of focusing on the Black Tea Society's hard
work and efforts, then I would think they were
appropriate, but as it is, they only seem to spek to
folks involved with that group. Unfortunately BTS
related folks seemed to be in the minority in the
Svea, opinions? other folks listening?
