I haven’t had the official word from BU yet, but it appear from my student record online that I earned an “A” in my first class in Boston University’s Online Master of Science in Health Communication program!

Stop the Presses, Literally

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

I hadn’t heard this: “Newsweeklies Plan Special Steve Jobs Coverage In rare move, ‘Time’ stops presses“.

Key quote:

Time’s regular weekly issue, which goes on stands Friday, will devote its whole feature well, 21 pages, to coverage of the Apple co-founder and software giant. (Time was closing the issue when the news broke, forcing it to stop the presses for what was believed to be the first time in at least 30 years.)

Good Line

Lately I’ve been reading, or re-reading, the short stories of Dashiell Hammett. They’re all reading the I have time for as my BU grad class is taking a good amount of time.

Anyway, while many people generally don’t praise the prose of early 20th Century crime fiction, I’m rather fond of it.

I just read a great line in “Afraid Of A Gun” describing the antagonist Rip Yust:

Yust was not possessed of the clearest of minds; he was not fitted, for all his patience and deliberation, to unerringly sift the false from the true.

Pretty clever …
