Of note:

Running behind this week, but want to post a few things that caught my eye this week from a journalism standpoint:

First, via Al's Morning Meeting, a great public records investigation by The Guardian, who reveal Q. What could a boarding pass tell an identity fraudster about you? A. Way too much , or how a discarded piece of paper could really get you into trouble. Using the info on a boarding pass found in a trash bin, the reporter and a security expert found a frequent flyer number which let them order a ticket, which led them to personal information, which could be enhanced by using available online searches. Wow.

Here's News Gems, a blog highlighting good writing from a J-prof.

And, NewsGorilla (BONG Bull) is back. BONG: Burnt Out NewspaperCreatures' Guild.

For a dire look at the state of newspapers: A Date with the Butcher, Vin Crosbie speech.

Iraq's Press: A Status Report, from Council on Foreign Relations.
