Blogger gets booted from NCAA event

Here is a new issue for bloggers.....on Sunday The Louisville Courier-Journal’s Brian Bennett was submitting a live blog during game 3 of the Louisville-Oklahoma State Super Regional game in Louisville, Kentucky when he was told by an NCAA representative in the bottom of the fifth inning that blogging from an NCAA championship even is against NCAA policies....Bennett had done live blogging during the previous two games.....the NCAA official then revoked Bennett’s credentials and asked him to leave....

On Monday night I emailed Bennett to get his side of the story.....he responded with the following:
I've been advised by the newspaper not to do any interviews on this subject at this time. Thanks for your interest, Brian
The following links have more detail about the incident including Bennett’s take....

  • Sopranos
    Why are so many people upset with the Sopranos ending?....I have heard and read how people were disappointed
    because there was no “closure” and things were no “tied up”......what????.....I thought the ending was excellent.....the closure was the fact that life goes on for Tony Soprano.....Tony will always have to deal with indictments, the feds, looking over his shoulder as who may be trying to whack him, and just the plain old simple family issues that we all face everyday.....

    Even the lyrics indicate that Tony is “the chosen one” and somehow he always survives the problems he faces.....throughout the series, Tony survived two incidents where he was shot, a troubled marriage, partners who flipped on him, etc.....here are the lyrics:

    You woke up this morning
    Got yourself a gun,
    Mama always said you'd be
    The Chosen One.

    She said: You're one in a million
    You've got to burn to shine,
    But you were born under a bad sign,
    With a blue moon in your eyes.

    You woke up this morning
    All the love has gone,
    Your Papa never told you
    About right and wrong.

    But you're looking good, baby,
    I believe you're feeling fine, (shame about it),
    Born under a bad sign
    With a blue moon in your eyes.

    You woke up this morning
    The world turned upside down,
    Thing's ain't been the same
    Since the Blues walked into town.

    But you're one in a million
    You've got that shotgun shine.
    Born under a bad sign,
    With a blue moon in your eyes.

    Simply how much can a provider legally charge you to let a plan holder out of his car insurance?
    Normally , how much does your agency charge when an individual wishes to end and how much pressure do you use to maintain them?
    What are some ideas or something like that we can say if our any individual has several months still left on his present automotive insurance plan? Certainly, many of us are not going to hold back until his renewal comes due every time.
