    I sent it upstairs to be dealt with. It really wasn't that big an issue for us in terms of the next day's paper -- Delta State is hours away and got beat badly. It was just such a system breakdown that I thought it was worthy of some further examination.

    Anyway, I already know how to get any event shot by AP and moved worldwide:

    Tell them Cindy Sheehan will be there.

    She's got more guts than Donald Rumsfeld will ever have.

    Good thing for you Delta State lost last week, HH, because you know and I know them lazy bastards in Florence aren't gonna ship any photos to AP this Saturday.

    Grand Valley State vs. Northwest Missouri State? Who the hell south of Sedalia, Mo., cares? ;)

    Sedalia? That's kind of random, given that it's really Mules/Jennies territory and nowhere close to Maryville, Mo.

    I won't worry about my friends in Florence. They have my sympathy, as I had a chance to watch the D2 championship from the inside last year.

    If that happens, call your nearest photo center. For you, I think Chicago. Ask them to contact a member paper and to move them out on the general wire. It's pretty standard stuff.
    Just because AP isn't there, doesn't mean they don't have access to news photographs.

    We have no shortage of D-3 art here.

    Back when I worked in Virginia, I'd have to throw a fit on a regular basis to get AP to call a bigger paper and get them to send Virginia Tech or Virginia art. But they normally would do it.

    The worst was in North Carolina. In the fall of 2003, North Carolina's AP -- from what I recall -- refused to move any college football art until the beginning of the season. I was new there and didn't have the opportunity to archive any photos from the previous year and our 8,000-circulation paper couldn't (or so our publisher says) afford AP Archive. So every single college football story about a North Carolina team (UNC, Duke, Wake Forest, East Carolina and N.C. State) ran without a photo. I wasn't very happy about this.
