"[…] Where you are is a very special place in Charleston, and it's a very special place because this church and this site, this area, has been tied to the history of African Americans since about the early 1800s. This church was built in 1891. The congregation was formed in 1814 […]" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP35_JVnP6g&list=PLNxwX7r4A555fVRsi5yAalP2ueookKRGu

Another shade-throwing tactic is to annotate a social-media outburst with stage directions like “sips tea” or “side-eye,” as if to say: “I’ll just sit back and demurely drink this beverage while I watch you act a fool and debase yourself.” mobile.nytimes.com/2015/05/17/magazine/the-underground-art-of-the-insult.html?referrer=

Introduction
Since May 2007, I've worked as the Bay Area News Group's online coordinator. I offer best-practice advice on blogging and social media, forum moderation, reader-generated content and live chats.

I was born and raised in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and earned a bachelor's in mass communications (concentration in newspaper journalism) from Bowie State University.

My first newspaper job (not counting several years as a Washington Post paperboy in Silver Spring, Md., and a year or so as editor-in-chief of Bowie State University's Spectrum student newspaper) was a Chips Quinn Scholar internship at the Oakland Tribune. That led to schools and general-assignment/nightcops reporting stints with the Tri-Valley Herald in Pleasanton and a stint on ANG Newspapers' universal copy desk as an editor and paginator; later came online copy-editor shifts at TheStandard.com and Salon.com.

I joined the Contra Costa Times in September 2001 as a copy editor and paginator. I became the paper's first morning online reporter in January 2006.

I came in early on a Saturday morning and saw a gentleman behind the counter answer three other customers' questions quickly and politely. And he only charged me $5 for a while-you-wait shoe shine.

During a protest outside superior court, the manager let me charge my laptop. Thanks to his generosity, journalism proceeded apace! :-)
