A friend just sent this:

"College Students to Save the News?

"Ohio schools Miami University and Earlham College announced they will

partake in a joint venture with local media to establish a regional

news service for parts of Ohio and Indiana.

"Journalism school students will report, write and produce stories

that can then be used by media outlets in print or on their Web

sites. The University of Maryland's Interactive Journalism program is

funding the entire operation for $17,000.

"Now if we could only get Harvard University and the rest of the Ivies

to buy The New York Times."

I say: let the kids get Barack Obama elected first. Then they can turn their youthful energies to journalism.
