Today’s Title Is… The Pile Grows

Today’s Title Is… The Pile Grows

One source for subjects for my blog, “Today’s Title Is…”, is the newspaper. I read the Albany Times Union each day and tear out stories that may become blog topics at one point. I try to balance using positive and negative articles, but it seems that the bad outweigh the good by a lot. Regardless, the pile of articles on my desk has been growing by leaps and bounds. For example, today’s articles ranged from the appropriate age for a thoroughbred to race, to building a soundproof booth for the head of the Environmental Protection Agency for $25,000, to a worker employed by the state of New York whose location to sign in for work has been moved from one outdoor location to another- all of them quite offensive. There’s an ongoing lawsuit, by the way.

Anyway, here’s hoping that my pile dwindles and my generally sunny disposition results in mostly positive posts. It may also help to make your day a little better! Always feel free to share any ideas you may have for future posts in the comment section below or you can contact me directly. Thanks!
