Things to do in Sacramento and Beyond

The Bee's guide to events, activities, arts and entertainment

Checking out the TV competition


Your humble servants here at 21Q blog every day - multiple times, even. We see it as a good habit, like brushing our teeth.

It's just something we must do. Our editor says so.

Other local media bloggers, alas, aren’t so profilic. (If this is considered throwing down the blogging gauntlet, then so be it.) But, those bloggers do weigh in every few days or weeks, imparting their deepest thoughts to their fans.

What say we give you a rundown of what they’ve been posting?

Over at News10, news director Stacy Owen tries to placate irked McClatchy High School students, who think their school is being unfairly targeted by the media when outlets reported on a student bringing a gun to school recently.

Meanwhile, reporter Dan Adams laments the decline of newspapers. Hey, reports of our demise are greatly exaggerated, pal.

And sports reporter Ryan Yamamoto tells us what he’s had to eat at the end of every blog posting. (Dude, mix in a salad occasionally.)

At Channel 13, anchor Pallus Hupe opines on the starving and abused special-needs children discovered in Iraq. But, to lighten the mood, in an earlier blog posting, she gives readers her polysyllabic "Word of the Week” – vernacular.

Stefanie Cruz of Channel 31's “Good Day Sacramento” tells us about a run-in she had with a rude woman at the Railroad Museum.

And then, there's this from My58TV’s “hosts” Travis and Kelly:

Travis provides an insightful review of that cinematic treasure, “Knocked Up”: “Most of the humor is from the characters bagging on each other, which I think is pretty funny.”

And Kelly writes about the unbearable cuteness of her niece, McKenna.

Now, a question: What’s up with Channel 3? No blogs whatsoever. KCRA purports to be so hot on the Web, posting videos and online polls on its site and throwing stuff on a YouTube subscriber page. Well, why not blog?

Really, we can’t live without finding out what Dave and Lois think of Paris Hilton, how news director Anzio Williams justifies story placement, or whether Del Rodgers eats at Del Taco.

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.

hide comments

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites. We've heard from hundreds of you already and we're listening. Please continue to add your thoughts and questions here. We also encourage you to write Letters to the Editor on this and other topics.
