Things to do in Sacramento and Beyond

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

July 18, 2007

Now that we've blown out the candles on our virtual birthday cake and we're a year old, 21Q, everyone's favorite blog for all things Sacramento, has some changes to announce.

(Wait. The marketing department says they are exciting and innovative changes. And those folks are right.)

We have a new resident at 21Q: Bee movie critic Carla Meyer. Carla is no stranger to multi-platform journalism - she appears regularly to talk film on KFBK (1530 AM) - so it's only natural that she join the blogosphere. Not only will Carla give you the 411 on movie news and scuttlebutt around Sacramento, but she also will provide the early scoop on upcoming movies - the good, the bad, the ugly.

You can check out Carla's bio over there on the right of our main page.

In fact, all the residents of 21Q have updated bios, chock full o' fun facts about ourselves, because, you know, last year's bios were sooooo 2006.

Another exciting and innovative change: We're making it easier for you, the readers, to e-mail us by placing a one-click link directly below each posting. Notice, too, that there's also a comments section for you to tell us what you think about our views.

And, finally, some melancholy news (which the marketing department wants us to downplay). You'll notice that 21Q resident and night life diva Lisa Heyamoto has moved out of the neighborhood.

She hasn't gone far - just down to the second floor of The Bee's world headquarters to become a member of the hard-hitting and (repeat after me) exciting and innovative metro reporting staff.

Meanwhile, the tireless crew here at 21Q - which, by the way, has not missed a single day of blogging, holidays included - will continue to dig into Sacramento's rich cultural landscape.

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.
