Easton Patch Now Live

Easton's Patch has just hit the Internet news stands. It's edited by Morning Call alum Tom Coombe, who told me last week that he's really excited to be writing again.

But I have to warn you about a snarky and shallow column about Northamton County government, entitled "Are They Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" I's just the kind of trite nonsense ... oh wait. I wrote that.

It's wonderful.

I guess I'll stay here & speak my voice - peace as the Patch site requires me to register if I want to participate, screw that...

I won't fault anyone requiring registration. It is so easy to abuse the privilege of being able to post anonymously.

I sent a note to them informing them that I simply can't commit to any more sources of local information websites. I'll stick with Google when I want to find something, even locally.

Now you are reporting for the Bethlehem Press which does and has provided some great local stories, except when I read it, it's like week old news and I'm too cheap to pay for a subscription so that I might get it sooner.

Bernie, glad to see that the main stream press (Patch) has accepted you. Enjoy the freelancing!

They didn't "hire" me. It was a freelance job, similar to what I do at The Bethlehem Press. And yes, I am a slut.

Re anonymus posting -- some of us may not be hiding...I tried to register, and got such nonsense out of the site, I gave up. cate

Most people will not comment if they have to register. I try to keep is simple. But then I have to delete a lot, too.

Should call that site crap.com. It is horrible. Nowhere to go but up, I guess
