I’ve been doing my day job (as Regional Editor) to the exclusion of thinking much about baseball. I’m expecting to post some time this weekend.
Thanks to those of you who checked in to make sure all was OK. It’s been a horrific and incredible time, but being able to tell the important stories that need to be reported at a time like this is one of the reasons I got into this business — and why I still love it despite the array of challenges that face the media.
I am blessed to be in the midst of both the traditional and contemporary media worlds: Part of the Star Tribune’s print and online news operation and a blogger who gets to write about, discuss and debate baseball. Right now, in a slightly sleep-deprived state, I fully recognize the privilege that’s come my way.
A few quick notes:
*To donate blood, call the Red Cross at 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or Memorial Blood Centers at1-888-GIVE-BLD. There was a story in today’s paper about how more people than thought are not eligible to give blood for health reasons. So if you can, it’s very needed.
*There’s an interfaith service at 7 p.m. Sunday at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 519 Oak Grove, in the Loring Park neighborhood of Minneapolis. Here’s a map.
*If you’re going to the games this weekend, give yourself lots of time to get around downtown. Be patient.
