Here is a wonderful, entertaining, informative article about the 70th anniversary of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL). This article is great; it discusses the history of the lab, its relevance to the county's way of life, and some of the fantastic technological innovations that have been developed there over the years. The author, Janene Holzberg, is to be commended.
But, no offense to Ms. Holzberg, why couldn't education beat reporter Sara Toth have written this article??? Sara's a good writer. Johns Hopkins University is certainly an educational institution. And frankly, after writing about county tripe like the Briny-Stevie show and the Royal Howard Mounted Police, Sara's due for a fun article that the entire family would enjoy. Not more "Allen Dyer says 'sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me' " stuff again.
I call upon the editors of Patuxent to get out from behind their typesetting machines, wake up and smell the 2010s cooking! In other words, stop sucking, and give your local talent something to do that's fun and productive! Maybe-- cross my fingers-- Sara was doing some such work and thus missed the opportunity to write the APL article. Maybe.
Editors, enjoy your weekends! Stay beautiful!
