Bloggers of the world unite!

Then, once you're all in one room, I'm going to set it on fire.

It seems a reporter/blogger got booted from an NCAA baseball game for live-blogging. Nothing like a little new media First Amendment issue (if in fact that's what this is).

By the way, I picked this story up from The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer's exceedingly fine Bulldog Blog.

Thanks for the kind & generous alter offering. If uniting bloggers were as easy as getting Houston & Peach County, Georgia USA Elected & appointed officials to a dove shoot, you'd make new media history... I can't believe cousin Sonny lets these guys carry guns.ref*

"According to the incident report, a number of prominent men were in the hunting party on Ayer's land. Among them was Houston County Sheriff Cullen Talton, who "directed a great deal of profanity towards (the responding officer) upon his request to inspect Talton's birds," according to the report.

Talton did not return phone calls last week.

Talton's son Neal Talton, vice chairman of the Houston County Development Authority, was ticketed during the same incident for having shot more doves than the 12 permitted to one hunter in a single day. According to the DNR incident report, he ran away before being apprehended with 61 doves." To contact writer S. Heather Duncan, call 744-4225.
