America's Number One Black News Source Taste of Soul

Can you believe it? Thanksgiving is one week away!  I certainly have a lot to be Thankful for. I have a good job, great friends and a loving family, I am in fairly good health (I don't go to the gym nearly as much as I need to). My USC Trojans aren't doing that well, but we've been whipping on everybody for so long we finally are having a down year. But, with that said I still have much to be Thankful for.

As we move forward into this Holiday Season, I want to again bring to everyone's attention that we here at the Sentinel are launching several new campaigns, and we will be taking a number of surveys on our website www.lasentinel.net. I don't know if any of you realized this, but not only are we coming up on the end of the year but we are also coming up on the end of the decade. Because of that we will be having regular new polls about things like "what was the most significant news story of 2009 and what was the most significant news story of the past decade"? What was our biggest victory, what was our biggest set back? In order to be more proactive we will also be asking about ways we can improve our products and ways we can serve you, our loyal readers, better.

I am asking all of you to be in constant contact and daily check our website for more updates and surveys so that this years year-end, decade in review paper can be the best ever.

So, whether you agree or disagree, now more than ever I really need your input. I need to hear from you. I need to know what is going on in our community. I also need to know what other stories we need to tell, and what is on your mind. I really do want to hear from you, I want you to "Talk to Danny."

 

God Bless You,

Danny J. Bakewell, Jr.
