GAGGING APPROPRIATE: My local paper, The Tennessean, rarely fails to live down to my expectations. Usually, I wish this PC-filled newspaper would publish more local reporting, instead of filling space with wire service national and world news stories; after all, I can get good national and international reporting from the big boys, like the Washington Post and the NYT, on the web. But when the Tennessean does venture into the world of "original reporting," it doesn't do that very well either. (Synopsis: endearing story of American black women who go to Belize to hang out with black women there; discover they're all "sistas" who need to overcome the white power structure that makes them hate themselves because they have black skin. Not making this up.)
