NEWSLETTER FOR OCTOBER 2005
||Surviving the storm
It was Times-
Picayune legend. A hurricane comes, and you come into the office. The big, white building at 3800 Howard was storm proof. Bring food. Bring water. Bring pets. You'll survive here and, oh, yeah, put out the paper. It has come out every day for 168 years. A hurricane? Please, this is New Orleans.

A new direction for SJI
Glen Crevier: Sandy Rosenbush and Leon Carter were present at the birth of the Sports Journalism Institute in 1992. Actually, it was their idea to create opportunities for more women and minority print journalism students.
Games are important, but they're not everything
Greg Brownell: There are times when I feel kind of insignificant being a sports editor. It happens every couple of years, when a disaster comes along, whether it be man-made or natural, that steals everyone's attention away from sports.
See ya, sports
Nick Moschella: What in the name of Woodward and Bernstein is going on with more and more newspapers putting sports guys in charge of newsrooms?
Study: Sports bosses most stressed of staff
Scott Reinardy: Seven years after sports editor Edward Mulcahey Jr. died, the Rhode Island State Supreme Court ruled that his profession killed him.
Chris D'Amico's last day
The Newark Star-Ledger's Chris D'Amico spent 26 years and one day putting out sports sections. If not for this summer's PGA championship, he could have stopped at a nice even number.
Holly Lawton: Surprising ownership changes create excitement and energy at Detroit's two biggest papers.
Jason Carris: Sports editors are mostly pleased with the AP's decision to pull out of the BCS ranking.
The puck starts here
Christopher Sciria: It sounds like a great come back story. But does anyone care that the NHL is back?
