One-sheet broadside

Allow me to gleefully point you to Corridor, Cedar Rapids' "All-In-One" website for all kinds of information about the flood.

There's not a lot there, huh? This always happens when amateurs think they can throw up a website overnight and "do journalism" there. The geeks make the pages and walk away, thinking their job is done. But nobody fills the pages up with news. Nobody knows how. Nuzlogs are just not as easy as rip and read.

In other words, the global village is disconnected from the 'net down, a perfect example of McClueless McLuhanismo.
