    The tech people need to freeze a different view of Mr. Kurtz because he looks like something from a comic book with one eye open and the other closed. Especially since it is the first pic at the top of the screen.

        Building a dark room isnt too bad or expensive. You will need to add some plimbung, lights, maybe run some more electrical outlets, and make sure all the walls/windows/doors are COMPLETLY sealed with no light coming in. It will also need to be temp controlled (as in, dont build this in your attic or basement that is not connected to your central/heating cooling system, and you may want to add thermostats in the room so you know what the temp is.. the film chemical and paper are all sensitive to temp.)You can often get very good used equip if you check local auction sites. I have actually seen some good equip coming from the schools as they upgrade to new eqip or digital(becareful when buying used though, because especially coming from the schools they may have a lot of use or damage.)The above mentioned site is good as well.Black and white is easier to do and better to start with. Color gets a lil more picky and specific.

    having read many of the comments at nyt.com on the truth vigilante question, media appears ever more disconnected with it's purpose and its public than ever. the overwhelming theme from those comments is that media routinely acts as stenographer to lies while the public's perception of media's purpose is to act as champions of truth, a function which has been increasingly dismissed or beyond the grasp of stenographers posing as reporters posing as journalists. that this crystal clear and overwhelming response was summarily dismissed and ignored because it did not fit within the microscopically narrow, rhetorical and self-serving confines of the public editor's excessively engineered question is testimony to media's refusal to see itself honestly. clearly, the public feels that for every speculative assertion impossible to confirm or deny in absolute terms, there are literally dozens of lies which achieve standing or gain traction because they pass through the media virtually unfiltered to a public that is certain that media's Only function is to provide that filter, that is, to be vigilant when it comes to the truth. For the public editor, the editor in chief and howard kurtz to absolve media regarding the public editor's original self evident, self-serving microscopic question as if were relevant while simultaneously failing perfectly to honestly consider the virtually unanimous voice of a response they themselves characterize as overwhelming is a pretty good measure of, not only the magnitude of their disconnect with Both the public And the facts, but how dismally modern media measures up to it's first amendment responsibility to provide for an informed electorate or this case, their failure to so much as acknowledge their responsibility to provide for an informed electorate. Or what informed means.
    It is, however, encouraging that the number of people voicing their dismay, disdain, disgust, etc. for media's central role in the collapse of this civilization seems to be growing.

      Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the ieamgs aren\'t loading correctly. I\'m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I\'ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
