“He was lucky., if you can call somebody who has been gored by a bull
lucky.”
– Dr. Luis Romero (Mexican surgeon who operated on 14-year old matador
Jairo Miguel who was rushed by a bull at top speed, picked up and
carried by a 900-pound bull named Hildocalido with the bull's horn stuck
inside the matador's lung last week.  The horn came within an inch of
the boy's heart.)

***  One Paragraph Pitch:

Perhaps if you saw my resume, you'd cringe. Someone with a decade-long
career in sportswriting, wanting to jump into the 'real world'? Harumph,
you might think. I'd ask you to reconsider. I can't promise I'd have
in-depth knowledge in anything outside of the sports realm, but I learn
quickly. I have experience in nearly every aspect of production, from
reporting to copy editing to pagination – across multiple editorial
systems and platforms, too. I'm looking for a DC-area job that will
allow me to spend more time with my wife because, after all, football
games don't kick off at 10 a.m. on Wednesdays.

***  I had a brief but pleasant and productive trip to San Diego to
visit with my counterparts at Commander Naval Surface Force, attend the
Surface Warfare Enterprise strategic planning meetings and call on folks
at the Space and Naval Warfare Command.  We brainstormed lots of ideas
for new stories to embark upon while having breakfast high atop Point
Loma while watching the USS Ronald Reagan strike group return from
deployment.  I stayed at the “Captain's Quarters” in building I at Naval
Air Station North Island, with its a delightful old mission style
courtyard and home of the famous “I Bar,” a shrine to the now
disestablished VS Community that flew the S-3 Viking.  The last time I
stayed at this “Q” was more than seven years ago.While at North island I
saw the SS Curtiss, a Military Sealift Command Aviation Maintenance
Logistics Ship and one of the 35 ships in the Prepositioning
Program.Coronado is such a pretty and pristine town and looks very much
like it did when I attended Surface Warfare School there as an ensign.

I had dinner with my friend and former shipmate Bill Bonwit and his son,
Josh at their home in Tierra Santa.  Josh played me on the Wii, beating
me in bowling, tennis, baseball (twice) and boxing.  Bill recalls
arriving on USS Cochrane as an ensign and having myself and my roommate
Bob Krause take the new guy out on the town in Sydney, Australia. 

Tom and I attended the Old Dominion District Spring Camporee as staff. 
The camporee was held at the Antietam national Battlefield in
Sharpsburg, MD.  The last five camporees have had abysmal weather, but
this one had perfect weather.  Our campsite was on a pretty steep hill,
but other than that it was a very pretty place in the Cumberland valley.
 It was here that a battle between the Federal Army of the Potomac and
the Confederate Army of Virginia resulted in the bloodiest day in the
history of this country, if measured by deaths (more than 9,000), worse
even than 9-11 or Pearl Harbor or D-Day.

***  Shedding light on the dark site:

Ned, first my great apologies for having drifted away and fallen so far
afield from JOTW.  It's been a while since I last read or contributed. 
Hopefully my query here will help generate some useful discussion.

My company is investigating the development of dark sites as part of an
overall crisis comm plan review.  I'd like to get a compilation of best
practices and view a couple sites done right if there is anyone willing
to share.  Please respond directly if you'd prefer to michaelclendenin@cox.net, or share with the broader communications
community here.

Thanks in advance and keep up the good work.

***  The image conscious communicator:

Ned was curious about video production.  So he's asked Hal McArthur, ABC
some questions.

If you want to have a video made, does your production company need to
be local?

A production company should always be selected for the talent and
expertise they bring to the project.  We provide a turn-key budget that
includes everything, so that the client doesn't have to deal with any of
it, and it makes us “local”.  I direct shoots all over the country and
usually only take the DP (director of photography) and camera for
continuity.  The rest of the crew and necessary gear is obtained on
location.  Two of us did 10 cities in 4 weeks with a different crew in
each city.  Priceline.com is my form of gambling. 

Don't video production companies have huge overheads, with soundstages
and editing suites and expensive cameras?
 
Many do.  More of them do not.  Again, it's all about talent and skills.

them with long knives. Engine room crew informed the bridge and the
alarm was raised and crew mustered. The robbers threatened the deck
watch with long knives as they escaped from the funnel deck. The robbers
escaped with some engine spares by jumping into the river.  Upon
investigation, it was revealed that the robbers may have boarded the

watch and the other crew went for a security round on deck.
No injuries to crew.
