I get the Poynt

I am signed up for a bunch of daily Google alerts which inform me about various sports topics, including baseball stuff and Jewish-related items for my other blog. Sometimes I even read them.

Poynter.After the death last week of baseball lifer Don Zimmer, I received a GA for a story appearing on the very serious-yet-entertaining Poynter website about how baseball cards exhibit some of the best examples of “short writing,” since you have to squeeze a lot of information into a tiny space. I actually read this one and my diligence was unexpectedly rewarded with a link that tracks back to Kaplan’s Korner regarding the fellow credited with designing some of the back-of-the-card formats.

I encourage you to read the Poynter piece by Roy Peter Clark but if you can’t/don’t want to, here’s the KK story to which it refers.

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
