On the Media: Las Vegas Review-Journal lawsuits prompt fair use debate ...
"Fair use" on the Internet would seem to be a use that probes and ponders the original, possibly repackaging or rewriting it, without subsuming it. A fair use calls attention to an interesting story or news flash, perhaps elaborates on it or disputes it, but doesn't replace it.

Two Web journalists who Twittered me on Tuesday independently offered the same rule of thumb —- don't republish more than three paragraphs. Always name your source. Always link to the original.

Reporters and editors get understandably peeved when they see paragraph after paragraph of their work reprinted by competitors — regurgitation so extensive that there's no reason for the reader to seek out the original, even when a link is provided.

Poynter Online - E-Media Tidbits - Ken Sands - Vegas Newspaper Pulls Plug on 702.tv After Four Months
Eventually, people will watch Web videos on their home television sets and mobile devices. In theory, newspaper companies should invest now to develop video skills and earn a reputation for quality video journalism. But the equipment, training and staffing are expensive. And while video pre-roll advertising typically commands a high rate, it's difficult to produce enough video to break even. So when the economy tanks and newspaper revenues plummet, video is seen as expendable.

Some videographers at other newspapers complain privately about cutbacks that result in fewer videographers, more of an emphasis on short, breaking news videos at the expense of longer, narrative pieces, and being required to shoot still photos for the paper.

The Associated Press: Nev. brothel hopes male prostitutes boost business
The owner of a Nevada brothel suffering from the recession thinks she has been ignoring about half the market — the half that prefers men. [...] Meanwhile, Davis is drawing up her help wanted ad. She said she'll be looking for one or two men "in good shape, in their mid-30s to 50s." Asked about the age range, she notes that's another way women differ from men.

"Look at George Clooney, he's 50 and he's still considered a very sexy man. Women don't consider a man washed up by the time he's 50," she said.

Powells.com Interviews - Willy Vlautin
"Writing at the track is the best. You're surrounded by horses and weirdoes and gamblers and drinkers. All of those things relax me to no end. Plus, whenever you get tired or burned out, you can always bet a race."

Arizona is the new Nevada - Los Angeles Times
"Housing isn't cheap in Vegas anymore, nor is it in Phoenix, compared to what it was. But it's still cheap compared to California. We're averaging 9,000 Californians a month changing their [driver's] licenses to Arizona. To me, that's a phenomenal number.

DORIAN PURPLE: Musical Events: The New Yorker
"His songs can be maudlin, clever, obvious, as ornate as Versailles, as simple as pencils, hilarious, crude, breathtakingly wise, corny, and so musically rich that he seems to be working with instruments nobody else owns."
