Throw out the rulebook, if only for a day a month

Love this post from journalism teacher Mindy McAdams about throwing out the rulebook one day a month, forgetting everything you know about filling newspaper pages, and getting the whole staff engaged in some solid, local storytelling by all formats possible.

"First," she says, "you have to quit crushing everyone on the staff under stupid stories that no one in your community even cares about."

Have a read. The comments as well, they add a lot.
