    Jennifer Aniston is a fine actress. I don’t know who the guy standing next to her is.

      Sorry but a woman her age should not be going braless. She may be a Super-star, but she can’t defy gravity.

        I dunno. She seems to be holding up quite well.

    My new laptop apparently shipped the same day I ordered it from Dell. I might get it Tuesday. If so, I will be very, very happy.

    Times-Bulletin editor passes away 

    Well, damn:

    Marianne Gillespie had a big heart for Chillicothe.

    The long-time editor of the Chillicothe Times-Bulletin went beyond the duties of her job to immerse herself in the community from helping on the Claude-Ellen Days committee to volunteering with the Chillicothe Historical Society, the Zorrofest committee and the Key Club.

    Gillespie, 37, died Wednesday night after a six-month battle with cancer.

    Marianne and I were colleagues back in the TimesNewspapers era. Sorry to see her pass.

    Western Illinois University takes a dump over the Constitution 

    From Romenesko:

    A disturbance last month after a Western Illinois University (WIU) Black Student Association dance was captured on video by student journalist Nicholas Stewart. He was suspended as editor-in-chief of WIU’s Western Courier student newspaper after the school learned that he sold melee footage to news outlets.

    “I am taking this action,” WIU student services vice-president Gary Billerwrote to Stewart, “because I believe that your action as editor-in-chief poses a threat to the normal operations of the university. …In our meeting of December 15, 2014, you admitted to receiving personal compensation for a video that was sold with the banner of ‘Western Courier’ displayed. To date I can find no record of compensation to the University or the Western Courier.”

    Basic to freedom of the press is the right to make money from it. There’s no indication WIU owned any of the footage.

    Retired WIU prof Bill Knight is so mad he feels “like spitting nails.” Go read the whole thing.
