I read the other media blogs in Sac so you don't have to....
* Stefanie Cruz, on "Good Day Sacramento's" blog, sheepishly admits to triteness in reporting the latest O.J. Simpson saga.
But you can also detect a measure of pride that late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel mocked "GDS" and other unimaginative local TV news anchors for falling back on the old "squeezing the Juice" line.
Here's the link to Kimmel.
* Great rant recently by News10's Dan Adams, about the slow service at P.F. Chang's.
Is it too much to ask that, when you're on your lunch break, you can get served in a restaurant in a half hour or less? I think not. Unless, apparently, you're eating at PF Changs in downtown Sacramento.
To celebrate the new job that our talented assignment manager, Jennifer Watts, just got (at ABC News in NY), five of us from the station went to PF Changs for lunch ... Jennifer Smith, Marcey Brightwell, Jenn Watts, photojournalist Brandon Atchison, and I. We got there at 11:50 ... the place only half full. We ordered right away ... and then waited ... and then waited ... and then waited ... and then waited some more. We asked what was going on with our order. Finally, at 12:50, Marcey and I had to go on a story, just as the food arrived. The manager said he was sorry and the meal was on him. What meal? We left unfed.
Come on PF Changs, get your act together. It's too late for me ... I won't go to your restaurant again ... at least not the one in Sacramento. By the way, I did finally get lunch ... a PayDay candy bar I bought out of the station's vending machine. Sheesh!
* The always-provocative sacrag.com blog skewers the alt-weekly Sacramento News & Review for its "coverage" of an anti-war rally.
Take heart, SN&R. The Bee is routinely skewered (and occasionally praised) by those snarky Ragsters.
* Zach Melchiori, formerly one of Channel 13's Internet czars, has taken his tech blog to Prosper magazine, Zach's new employer.
