Blog Warning!!!

Hi everyone...

Chris and i are working on grades and enjoying reading your blogs.  We have noticed, however, that for those of you who have posted the CALENDAR gadget on your pages, there is a sexually explicit ad that may rotate on your page. 

If you are sharing your blog with your grandmother over break, and she is the kind of grandmother who would be uncomfortable with sexually explicit material, then you might want to remove the calendar gadget.  Or warm her ahead of time. Maybe she is a sex positive feminist and it won't bother her.  But just in case!

Have a great break!

Reading for this week

Hi all,

I emailed you all the reading for this week, to your RIC addresses.  It is by Croteau, a chapter on media and ideology.  Please read page 159-164 carefully and skim the rest. 

Because I sent it out so late, you have an extension on your blogs.  They are due on Monday night by midnight.

Email me if you have any questions.

See you Tuesday!

(We will be making photocopies of your T-charts and passing them out as a packet for everyone in the class, so that you all can be informed voters next Tuesday.  Please make sure your materials are neat, organized and ready for public consumption!)

See you Thursday.
