  • 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.

    Are we going to have to do this?

    I really don't want to go on a RINO hunt, but it seems we must have enough of them around that the common sense grass roots are getting trampled.  Time to put up the stay off the grass signs, and stake out the oasis in Lansing.

    Say it with me:
    "Government Owned Enterprises ALWAYS pay for themselves."

    Kinda brings back lunch ..from a few days ago.

    What are these geniuses thinking?  this DRIC plan was shot down by many of the same people who are now apparently willing to flush their reputations down the toilet.  Representatives and senators who declined to support the "Granholm boondoggle" now might actually support the "Snyder Boondoggle." The only thing that has changed is the governor, and the name of the project.  The payback is still as miserable as it ever was, with questionable traffic and use being the mechanism to repay the Canadian loan of a half Billion smackers.

    I posted a few questions last week, but didn't really get into some of the real details (dollars etc..) that are involved in this deal.  I believe however, I implied strongly enough that such a large enterprise certainly has great room for corruption.

    Being that this thing makes NO SENSE for any fiscally conservative Republican to embark on, it certainly has my brows creased.
