Sorry for being esoterically inept. Story is good, and the more the merrier.
The latest we can use photographs will be Saturday, anytime. I have to put
out 32 - 44 pages by Monday p.m. and would like to spread as many as possible
leading Detroit off page one despite the fact that we have lots going on
here, too (as Newsweek indicates and you'll see tomorrow).
Anyone who can be quoted on the record will also be helpful. It sounds like

By the way, anyone who thinks the United States has a "free" press should hit
Chicago's two daily papers for today (August 31) and look for the Detroit

We can talk later about the origins and implications of those media
manipulation facts. Let's just say, this isn't the "X Files" but something
that happened today in real time. Maybe by tomorrow Chicago's official mass
media will take not of the Detroit strike, but for today there was a
blackout. (Which wasn't true on local NPR, by the way, which carried a lot of
Enough for now. The more photographs, the better the story. Please send
