I just looked at other headlines under "News". really, if there is enough interest in these kinds of children's activities then create a separate category. You are insulting us by including them here. There really are News Events that are happening right now out there in Ann Arbor and the surrounding areas that affect all of our lives and we need to be informed about them. When you include these feel good fluff stories (2 just in this feed alone) I can't help but think that you do not have enough staff to go out there and get the real stories. The NY Times and Wall Street Journal will not tell me what's happening in my town. I depend on you to do this. You are leaving your readers uninformed about things that matter. Perhaps Journalism really is dead.

When I was in first grade, I had a poem and piece of art published in Highlights magazine. I'm available for an interview if you want to do an article.

When I was in first grade, I had a Letter to The Editor published in The Ann Arbor News. I'm not sure people who responded to the letter (which was a plea to keep "Blackie" the goat at an Arborland pet shop) understood how young I was! But, uh, yes, I am available for an interview also....
