Take life by the horns

Lloyd Goodman of Beaumont competes in steer wrestling during the Cowboys of Color Invitational Rodeo 2004 Southwest Tour finals at Mesquite Championship Resistol Arena in Mesquite on Saturday, October 23, 2004. He had the evening's fastest time at 4.39 seconds. Proceeds benefitted the National Cowboys of Color Museum and Hall of Fame.

Oddly, I can relate to this image much more now than last week when I made it. ;-)

Today was uplifting. I’ve seen how caring and compassionate the journalism corps truly is. If any of my fellow DMN ex-pats haven’t read posts for the last few days on D Magazine’s Front Burner or the leads from Eric Celeste at The Dallas Observer, please check them out. It soothes some of the sting and makes you stop considering a job at a Podunk biweekly (people are making room for us).

We’re good enough, we’re smart enough and, gosh darn it, people like us. Well, technically, they like copy editors, but maybe we can get jobs too. ;-)

Enough for now,
