    What happened to Dangerous Dan Richards?

    EDIT: I'm told Dan retired a couple of years back.

    Dunn has seats at the ACC and the Carolina Hurricanes. Don't think I've seen them at all this year, however.

    Last year, the guy from Dunn would shoot his own photos at the Hurricanes. Not sure if that was by choice or because of a lack of the AP wire.

    Dan retired a few years back ... still writes sort of part time. He figured out how much he could make, and still get Social Security, and they've come up with a good system. Not only does he still get to work - which keeps him active - but also he's been in the community almost 20 years, and in a place like Dunn, that's not to be underestimated.

    Dunn is roughly 40 miles from Raleigh, and Appgrad, Dunn does not have AP photo wire, so if the schools or organization can't provide the photo, they either have to shoot their own or do without.

    PM me for more details.

    If anyone goes to interview in Dunn they can always stop by Cafe Risque afterward for a piece of, uh, pie. :eek:

    You may be right. I, of course, wouldn't know.

    How in hell can you not have AP photo wire in this day and age? Is it really that expensive that a daily paper (even a small one) can't afford it? Or is it some stand about telling national to go fuck itself in place of more Locks of Love photos?

    Is is an all-local section, or just no AP photos? That job could be a real ass-eater because of the split shifts.

    No AP photos. But an attempt to make as much local as possible will be expected.
