Wearing your emotions
Wanna change SPJ’s name? Get a change of clothes.
This cotton T-shirt is available FREE in small, medium, large, and extra-large, while supplies last. Hat and cigar not included.
Terms and conditions…
• You must attend the Excellence in Journalism convention in Nashville, specifically the session called Should SPJ Change Its Name — and Mission? It’s Saturday, Sept. 6, at 1 p.m. in Ryman Studios H.
• I’d love for you to wear it that same afternoon, although once it leaves my grubby hands and gets into yours, I have no way to enforce that.
• Delegates will receive shirts before the mewling masses do – as long as they promise to wear their new shirts to the closing business session. Can’t enforce that, either, though.
• You can get a shirt even if you hate the idea of changing SPJ’s name. As long as you don it that Saturday, you can wear it ironically.
Got no idea what I’m talking about? Here’s some bathroom reading…
If you want to reserve your shirt, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your desired size, then pick it up at the session in Nashville. If you’re a delegate, mention that. Questions? Holler. But don’t ask me why I’m doing this. Because I dunno.
Unfettered access to those in power, a push for government transparency and a vigorous defense of the First Amendment are perhaps more important now than ever before. Join us as we fight for the public’s right to know as an SPJ Supporter. Or, if you’re a journalist, we welcome you to stand with us as a Professional, Student or Retired Member.
