reporter seeking FSP members, doubters, etc.
« on: October 02, 2003, 09:14:21 pm »

Hello FSP members,
Please forgive me for intruding into your forum. I am a reporter with the Concord Monitor, and have been following the activities of the FSP for several months. I stopped by in Lancaster when members visited NH over the summer, and was in NYC this week for the announcement.
Now that NH has been chosen as the setting for the project, I'd be interested in speaking with folks who are excited, disappointed, or whatever about the decision. How has it changed the nature of the project, or your involvement with it? Do you think NH is a great choice or a poor one for the project's future? Anybody ready to move up here immediately? Anyone dropping out because they were pulling for another state to win?
If you'd like to speak to me, please send an email to dbarrick@cmonitor.com, preferably with a phone number, and we can hook up.
Thanks,
Dan

I've been interviewed by Dan Barrick several times, and can vouch for his accuracy in terms of quotes, etc.  He's more reliable than the average media vulture, er, reporter.  

Although, Dan, I was a bit astonished to find a description of myself on the front page of  today's Monitor, "whooping it up at the hotel bar," having drunk a bottle of champagne in my "tailored blue suit."

Geez, I'm a grad student.  It was Jos. A. Banks, fer cryin' out loud!

The champagne was White Star, however.  Very nice.

Yeah, well, Dan's the one who said I reminded him of a "third-grade teacher."  :'(

I thought of it as a compliment, Elizabeth. Besides, many FSP'ers seemed to agree with the assessment!  ;)

As I told you before, though, you happen to remind me more of my fourth grade teacher...

Be very careful of how you allow the press to DEFINE YOU OR OTHER FSPers. Some will seek to make this an impression that will stick in the minds of residents and it may not be what you want it to be.

The press you control is the one you own.
Not many can be trusted save for the MUL.

Yeah, I was just teasing.   :)

Dan's a good guy, his coverage has been pretty fair.
