I read than on another local Blog two days ago. The Sound is OK for what it is, a poor-man's Carpinteria Coastal View
Yes, anon 11:28, just like the News-Press is OK for what it is, a rich woman's Carpinteria Coastal View.Even with its typos, misspellings and other errors, the Sound reflects freedom of the press much more than the News-Press, and actually covers news and allows opinions to be expressed without fear or favor.Not bad for a poor man's honest paper. Sort of like little David standing up to big Goliath. We all know how that fight ended.
Santa Barbara is a better place with the Sound than no sound. I am always amazed that some people can always find something negative about anything, even if it does not cost them anything. Kudos to BlogaBarbara for posting some good news.
Yeah! Happy Birthday Daily Sound. I'm looking forward to the next year of good reporting, local news, and collaborative efforts with other local businesses and organizations.
If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it still make a sound?If the 8th annual state of the city breakfast takes place and Mayor Blum speaks but is not quoted in the News-Press so no one can read what she said, will the newspaper of record show that she never spoke?If Congresswoman Lois Capps speaks for 8 minutes in De La Guerra Plaza about trying to expedite NLRB action in Washington against the News-Press for breaking national labor laws, but she is not quoted in the News-Press along with all the other speakers at the rally, will the newspaper of record show that they also never spoke and that the rally never occurred?A lesson is to be learned here. If you’re a squirrel in a tree that’s falling in the forest, regardless of how the sound is recorded, concentrate on protecting your nuts and taking them somewhere safe, just as the newsmakers in Santa Barbara have to take their news to alternate newspapers such as The Daily Sound and the blogs so people can know they did speak and events did occur. Thanks, Daily Sound, for helping safeguard our nuts from Wendy McCaw.
The falling tree is really loud here:http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-6313104587360789545The Indy and Daily Sound covered the rally. Just wait till their publishing day.
Granted I'm not the most educated man in Santa Barbara — I stopped a year short of my Ph.D. — but I don't see too many errors in the Daily Sound. There were a lot when the paper first started, but not so much anymore.I find more typos in the Independent than any other paper I read.
Looking better everyday!
