Calculated Pi

First, I am here in class, participating. Gold star.

Okay, I don't like this article.
It tastes bad.

Bleh. There was an extended characterization of Obama; it was well-done... nice imagery, color, all that. Since it was so well done, it probably made me like the article less.

I guess the part that's getting to me is what Obama said to the business owner. I'm not saying it wasn't a good point, I'm not saying it wasn't a perfectly framed media moment. He just sounds like a snot, and that makes me bristle.

Normally, when I'm reading political material, I try to keep an open mind and give the benefit of the doubt. Since the author certainly wasn't aiming for objectivity, I'm not going to bother to stifle my irritation.

Potential Markets Chef Mom magazine Relish magazine

I didn’t see anything right away (on the freelance writing site) that looks like it would want a version of my “bucket list” article.
But, I’m working on a cookbook, so I could probably whip up a foodie piece. And I have some great quality photos that could go with it.
