  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    Fun With Dave And Sandy

    The pressure is on, and the expected deadlock in congress between insane progressives and insane progressive wannabes has them slapping each other with their neckties.

    Dave Camp as part of the Super Committee was set up to fail, and he should have known it.  The debt ceiling being allowed to raise only a part of his problem, the honorable Mr. Camp must face down the bullies in the room as an after effect.  Sander Levin and Dave Camp had a peanut butter on my chocolate moment recently.

    Camp's point drew the ire of the usually mild-mannered Levin. He grabbed the microphone in front of him and turned to his colleague.

    "We can argue ... I'll take back my time," Levin snapped, rapping his hand on the table.

    "Your policies certainly haven't worked very well," retorted Camp.

    "Let's not argue about the policies because I think you're wrong!" snorted Levin.

    "It's a fact!" parried Camp, his voice rising over Levin's. "You promised a 6 percent unemployment rate!"

    At that, Levin slapped the table twice and turned toward Camp.

    "Focus on the unemployed in the state of Michigan!" admonished Levin.

    "I am focused!" Camp replied.

    "You're not!" disputed Levin.

    "Had we not passed the stimulus bill, we'd be better off," Camp pronounced.

    The men stared daggers at one another briefly.

    Then they kissed and made up.
