Ritual, serving out of Lost Weekend Video recently,  had a private party Saturday night to unveil its new look.  We happened to walk by, but will be joining others when it reopens this week

The party looked like fun and while my photos leave much to be desired, the place looks great.  Congrats to Ritual – I hope you continue the miniature art projects that you kept in front during the remodel.

I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.

As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.
