Ride Along

While I am willing to admit that I am the whitest person on the planet, I am also able to recognize a degrading stereotype when I see one. The above-mentioned film is FULL OF THEM! I am the first to call a spade a spade and come forth with the information that I only saw a few minutes of this deplorable film on a pay cable channel. I am also able to say with utmost determination that being shot up by drug dealers (like seen in this film) would be less painful then having to see the entire 99 minute flick. I use the word “flick” in this case because this movie reminds me of something large, wet, and green that I picked out of my nose while watching it and “flicked” at the TV. When it stuck to the green it was the best thing seen on the small screen for the short time that I watched this movie. In case you don’t understand how I truly feel about this film. Let me put it in other words. I would rather but caught in a drug dealers shoot out, run over by a police car, and overdose on cocaine then see this film in its entirety. Grade F

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
