When I’m next in on March 22nd, we’ll be discussing Census research.  In yesterday’s Times, there was an excellent example of Census Bureau statistics inspiring a story (video included).  On March 23rd, I’ll be “embedded” in class to assist you with a Census-related story assignment, so it’s not too soon to start thinking about what you might like to do.  As long as it’s inspired by Census data, the assignment is pretty open-ended.

Today’s rant: Another reason I’d be fine if Facebook went away forever, investigative value be damned.
