The Weekend. Dear Lord, the Weekend

Monday: Sinead 
Tuesday: More Sinead
Wednesday: Union rep at two discipline hearings, 1 clearcut, 1 less so. Learned I'd be getting another town added to my beats, with at least 3 more beats in said town.
Thursday: Can't remember, because of Monday-Wednesday. Not enough stories written
Friday: Results of discipline hearings. Teh Suck. Not enough stories written.

BUT ... This 



Also, old-fashioned jazz, and a mimosa. 

And a very handsome husband.

Maybe things are looking up?

Learned I'd be getting another town added to my beats, with at least 3 more beats in said town.

See, this is something I've always been curious about. Beats, I mean. As a stringer for Niles Herald-Spectator, I eventually wound up writing everything that wasn't crime or sports. Crime was handled by the staff writer who pretty much writing most of Park Ridge Herald-Advocate.

So what I'm saying is that I've always kind of assumed that each staff writer gets a town, some extra stuff on top of it, and we stringers filled in whichever towns Pioneer Press wouldn't hire staff reporters for. I didn't realize staff writers had beats (other then sports and entertainment)

(In related thought, when Pioneer Press adopted Tribune-style bylines, I was surprised at how many reporters I thought were staff were actually stringers)
