Topic: Quoting people from here in the FJ..

I see a poster here was quoted in a story in today's Journal.. It's one thing to have a "talkback" section and let people rant on many subjects, but getting quotes for a story from a message board and not printing a editorial every day seems more lazy than cutting edge to me.

I was quoted in a FJ Burton News article about the two remaining drive-in theaters in Genesee County. While I work in Flint Township, I live in the city, to correct the article:

Okay, what specifically are you referring to, Smakutus?

Gary Flinn or me?

Just FYI, I use this handle on the Mlive message boards, as well.

The article I was quoted in is mentioned in the Cinema Treasures web site. While I report area news about movie theaters in that web site, I had nothing to do with this submission:

Did they even contact you before using it?

I've been told that the guy who wrote most of the Journal's editorials took the buy out..

Actually, no, they did not. I guess they figure it's public domain if it goes up on their site. Never thought about it.

From what I understand the Journal is rather a mess -- all buyouts and no hiring. And I wonder, with that many takers, what that says about working there...
