The media


travels in packs.

This was more than apparent this morning in front of the Juvenile Courthouse in Hadley Center for the arraignment of three juveniles in the Phoebe Prince bullying case that has taken on the aura of the O.J. Simpson murder trial.

Can you imagine how much it costs for those satellite vans and support staff? These days some yokel like me with a $100 point-and-shoot digital camera, $250 netbook and a Wifi connection can do it all instantaneously.

Every morning news crews are in front of South Hadley High (parked at the flower shop across the street)

What are they hoping to get? How many videos of the school entrance are needed?

Yeah, that's why I get in and get out fast (and cheaply)
