Come Tuesday, It Might Be Morrie

Mitch Albom is getting a drubbing for concocting a piece about a game he hadn’t (yet) attended and filing the story without waiting to see if it would turn true. He got caught when he guessed wrong who would be at the game. He swears it’s the only time it’s happened. Gee, I hope so.

I remember a reporter once telling me how he “evergreened” articles for when he was on vacation. I do that sometimes with blog postings, although never about events that have not yet taken place. Oddly, Albom may inspire me to do that… but his is a cautionary tale to keep my “predictions” in draft status, so my fingers have to do the walking, and my brain some reviewing, before my words go live.
