  • 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.

    Taking Granholm off our hands, but at what price?

    I'm a big fan of the Alien franchise.  Or, rather, I'm a big fan of the first three movies in the franchise... the next three are Alien movies about the same way Episodes 1-3 are Star Wars movies.  But that's neither here nor there.

    In Alien 3, the series' heroine, Ellen Ripley comes to a horrifying realization.  Growing inside of her is an Alien queen, a creature of incredible destructive power, its structural perfection matched only by its hostility.  "Unclouded by conscience, remorse or delusions of morality."  And this particular breed is able to reproduce without a mate.

    Those familiar with the franchise will remember that when an alien enters this world, its host dies rather painfully.  Its not a pretty picture.  

    Ripley is faced with an uncomfortable choice.  She can either destroy the queen, and herself along with it, or she can embrace an opportunity presented to her by an outsider.  He has the ability to take the alien and rescue her from her own horrific, premature death but Ripley understands that while handing over the specimen will grant her a temporary reprieve, the results for those around her would be cataclysmic.  

    Now here we are in Michigan and we find ourselves the host to our own parasitic, job-killing queen and darn it all if President Obama isn't rumored to be offering us a chance to get rid of it.  But the consequences to those around us...

    Technically NEXT Friday is Friday the 13th but if the rumors swirling around the Capitol press corp don't scare the life out of this state TODAY I'm not sure any mix of black cats, tall ladders and sci-fi horror movies could.
