Update from the BBC

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Earlier, I reported that I'd been interviewed for about an hour from London by the BBC show "Horizon," which is equivalent to PBS's "Nova." Yes, it was pretty exciting.

It is a truism in newspaper journalism that no matter what the plan for tomorrow's paper is, it is undependable until ink actually hits paper. By that standard, basically nothing happened just now.

It's a little weird following Indiana TV reporter Jenny Anchondo on Twitter, because she tweets things like "Right two lanes of I-65 SB closed near Keystone Ave. due to crash," and "When @Fox59sjones is happy, everybody is happy. He got a 2 for 1 from the vending machine today. #Score."

But of course, journalists always strive to balance their inquiries with opposing views, and those are the comments I want to share with you.
