When it comes to social media: Tumblr


June 26, 2010 Tumblr


“When it comes to social media, traditional news organizations have wholeheartedly embraced Facebook and Twitter.

“Last we checked, The Times had 627,497 Facebook fans and about 2.5 million Twitter followers.

“But the idea that a publication would create an external blog in addition to the blogs that live on its own website is just starting to take hold.

“And Tumblr, known for its sophisticated user interaction features, has become the media’s preferred platform.

“As it turns out, by a Tumblr spokesperson’s count, there are around 20 traditional media outlets (and that includes HuffPo because, whatever, it’s a huge operation that bills itself as a newspaper on the web) that are now Tumbling, much like so many of the (mostly) young “media elites” who either work for, read or obsess over said news outlets.”

(Disclosure: I have one: http://kevindayhoff.tumblr.com/ since May 12, 2009)

~~~~~~~

Dr. Douglas Chilcoat, 71, a longtime veterinarian in the Westminster area, died unexpectedly June 17, 2010, at his home in Talkeetna, Alaska.

Chilcoat began practicing veterinary medicine in the early 1970s in Westminster. For more than 30 years, he maintained a practice at the Westminster Veterinary Hospital at the intersection of New Windsor Road and West Main Street.

Chilcoat was one the first area vets to maintain a 24-hour emergency animal care service. A Baltimore Sun article from May 31, 1994, noted, “Starting tomorrow, pet owners won't have to worry about waking their regular veterinarian to rush to the office when an animal companion becomes seriously ill or is injured during the night….

Several years ago, Chilcoat relocated and started a new veterinary practice in Talkeetna, a small town of about 778 residents in the Upper Susitna Valley, where the Susitna, Chulitna and Talkeetna Rivers come together, two-and-half hours north of Anchorage, Alaska. Mt. McKinley is nearby and the area is well known for salmon fishing and spectacular scenery.
[…]

“Cicely,” the fictional town from the television series “Northern Exposure” was “based on Talkeetna, a town on the rail line between Anchorage and Denali National Park, with plenty of its own quirks…,” according to a Sept. 30, 2007, article in the San Francisco Chronicle.

News of his death spread through the Carroll County community earlier in the week primarily by word of mouth. An article published by KTNA, a community radio station in Talkeetna, on June 17, included, “Dr Chilcoat was a practicing veterinarian in Talkeetna, and also served as a volunteer veterinarian in the Iditarod Trail sled dog race. He was well known by dog and other pet owners in the Upper Susitna Valley.”

Discontinuing the Facebook Off Track Art "Group"

Kevin Earl Dayhoff Off Track Art: Over time, there developed two "Off Track Art" Facebook pages... A "group," and a "business": http://www.facebook.com/pages/Westminster-MD/Off-Track-Art/48902557057?v=wall&ajaxpipe=1&__a=5

This page: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=51940066989&ref=ts... is somewhat redundant and in the near future I will delete it so that we can get information out from only one place on Facebook. So, if you are not already on the http://www.facebook.com/pages/Westminster-MD/Off-Track-Art/48902557057?v=wall&ajaxpipe=1&__a=5 page, please consider getting on that page....

If that is clear as mud, type Off Track in the search box and go to, and "join" the "local business" page.

Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal and the inconvenient truth about “Mission Impossible”

http://kevindayhoff.blogspot.com/2010/06/mcchrystal-spoke-truth-to-power.html

Jun 23, 2010 ... President Barack Obama stripped Army General Stanley McChrystal of his command of US troops in Afghanistan for making disparaging remarks ... Gee, one may only imagine that journalists will have great access to the military now – maybe not…

What we are left with is a mixed bag.

Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal got into trouble with the president and the leadership of the Democrat Party because he publicly said what many in the military and foreign policy development and execution have been saying privately for over a year.

The president had no choice but to relieve him of command.

Of course if Gen. McChrystal had uttered such observations during the Bush Administration, there would no end to the praise adulation from the very same Democrat leaders.

In the parlance of those on the left: McChrystal spoke truth to power.

McChrystal out; Petraeus picked for Afghanistan - Yahoo! News
Jun 23, 2010 ... President Barack Obama ousted Gen. Stanley McChrystal as the top US commander in Afghanistan on Wednesday, saying that his scathing ...

Would that be this General Betray Us? http://tinyurl.com/2f9atzy

Or this General Betray Us? McCain Asks When Clinton Will Apologize to Petraeus http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXcXzoHjqhE&feature=related

Gee, I’m guessing that the appointment of General Petraeus requires a certain “suspension of disbelief.”

The Obama administration's attitude towards the military makes the Clinton administration's view look respectful...

That said, what McChrystal did was wrong. The military protects freedom of speech - it does not practice it.

Not to perseverate upon the issue, however, if the American public were to be aware of the increasingly - absolutely seething intellectual revolt of the American military over the military practices and policy of the Obama administration, it would make the alarm over the economy present like Romper Room.

If the traditional media continues to cover-up for the president, it will only add gasoline to the fire.

I have wanted to write about it; however, I usually avoid anonymous sources... (The most vocal are former Obama supporters.)

I have been observing the military closely since the late 1960s and I find the current unrest in the military unnerving.

The grunts on the frontline in Afghanistan call the war effort, “Mission Impossible.”

In spite of his extraordinary service as a black ops warrior, I have not been a McChrystal fan of the role he has played as the top military commander in Afghanistan.

However firing Gen. McChrystal for expressing the opinion of an increasingly large majority of military could precipitate an even bigger crisis.

How the president handles this current matter is critical. To paraphrase someone wiser: “The inconvenient truth is that when it comes to the substance of his criticism, most in the military think McChrystal ‘was right.’”

While we are attempting to sort it all out, be sure to read the Baltimore Reporter’s June 23, 2010 post: Obama’s Rules of Engagement In Afghanistan Will Ensure Our Failure (Filed under: General, bad foreign policy, Democratic weakness in Defense and the War on Terror) — Robert Farrow from Flopping Aces: The new rules of fighting a war….Obama style, via George F.
