    Hey AP:

    Feel free to move a Hurricanes-Maple Leafs story that's longer than three inches sometime in the very near future. Some of us in the hinterlands have early deadlines.

    Thank you.

    The L.A. Times cannot complain that AP doesn't move a story fast enough.

    Maybe more than two photos from the Kentucky-Florida basketball game, and a photo of someone besides John Wall?

    You guys are never satisfied.... Next thing we'll hear is second base photos aren't good enough...

    The Lakers-Mavs box moved at 10:10 CST and the update moved at 10:24.

    It's 11:45 and I'm still (surprise!) waiting on Jaime Aron's optional.

    Our shop just switched to MCT photo service. So now, we get the added joy of matching AP stories with MCT photos.

    Tonight, MCT didn't move any Duke-Boston College photos until 10:30 p.m. With an 11 p.m. page-off-the-floor deadline, that really pushes us to the limit.

    Not to bring up an old favorite of ours, but Hey AP...

    ...Can we get a photo, ANY photo, from tonight's Braves-Rockies game? I'll take anything -- even the generic pitching shots.

    They moved photos.

    I see. It's not like a photog like Bazemore to be so slow. May've been a technological issue, so I'll give him benefit of doubt.
