06/24/08 GREENWICH CITIZEN WEBSITE VISITORS ARE ANNOYED BY "ALL THE NEWS" ON OTHER LOCAL WEBSITES


Greenwich Citizen On-line Visitors Are Clueless

Web's Breaking News Threatens
Greenwich Citizen Reader's Local
And World Views

The profusion of international news available on the Internet has made it increasingly difficult for wealth Greenwich residents to ignore the rest of the world, a trend local observers say threatens Greenwichite's long, proud history of disregarding anything not about them.

With all the newspapers and multi-cultural sites, the Internet is making it almost impossible for the country club set to remain uninformed and apathetic.

However, these uniformed rich folks are repeatedly comforted by the rarely updated, Greenwich Citizen News web Site.

For four days the Greenwich Citizen has had the same old lead story up on the web.


In 5-0 Vote, P&Z Gives Stanwich/Reform Synagogue

...Among those speaking against the development were Blair Murphy, a neighbor and RTM-8 delegate; Mary Lou Lange of a neighborhood group questioning the project and raising contentious issues, and Dr. Michael H. Doll, a consultant scientist hired by the neighbors to address thorny issues dealing with traffic, flooding, sewage and size.

"I have spent some time researching the problems (and providing you with my findings). Based upon my research, the proposed Stanwich School expansion is fraught with problems and risks and should be rejected.

"I think everyone agrees this is a great school; however, it is rather disturbing the Stanwich School is so cavalier with their 'trust us' and 'take a leap of faith' attitude.

"All aspects of this expansion need to be thoroughly investigated, not just glossed over because it's a great school. As proposed, this project will have an enormous and possibly disastrous impact on our Town."....

Please reread the same old four day old Greenwich Citizen Web news story

Sensing a market opportunity, Net Nanny, makers of Net Nanny filtering software, contacted the Greenwich Citizen this week about introducing NetNarrow, a product that automatically filters out content that appears to be breaking news.

The Net Narrow software developer was heard to say,"Most Greenwich Citizen Web Site visitors think that the Internet is called America Online, right? Were going to make a killing protecting Greenwich Citizen readers from breaking and hard hitting news."

On back country resident welcomed the new NetNarrow service saying,"
Yesterday, for instance, I heard that School Superintendent Betty Sternberg had went on medical leave 10 days ago, so I went on AOL looking for information about the public schools, OK, and I go to the London Times site and it's not even there."

"Good Lord, no wonder those guys lost the war and had to give Hong Kong back to China", the annoyed wealthy resident continued.

"Thank Goodness I can still read about this two week old story at the Greenwich Citizen, the reassured contry club jet setter added, "I think Betty and her crew are doing a great job with those poor kids at Glenville and Hamilton Avenue Schools."

Please See:

Last Friday, Superintendent of Greenwich Public Schools Dr. Betty Sternberg took a medical leave of absence until mid-August.

Her medical issues were not known. But she said, "I have every expectation that I will be returning in mid-August, and I don't expect that a beat will be missed."...
THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY
AND YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO BE
UNINFORMED !!!
