I haven’t forgotten that it’s Tuesday

This week’s featured missing person is Christian Rudolf Hill, last seen in Birmingham, Alabama on October 16, 2011. He was twenty-four. Two weeks after his disappearance they found his car abandoned; beyond that, I don’t have much on him.

Missing young men, in particular missing young black men, are under-represented in the media.

Getting the hang of this YouTube thing

Yeah, once I figured out how to make videos it went easily. I followed the same basic template for each one; only the names, picture and narration changes. I’ve made six so far: three males and three females.  I’m trying to find cases that have a reasonable amount of detail but not so much that I can’t summarize it in thirty seconds or so.

What is troubling, however, is that I’ve had to discount some promising possibilities just because I wasn’t 100% sure how to pronounce their names.

I don’t know how this is going to work yet — whether the vids will be a regular feature or whether I’ll just add them in batches whenever I feel like it, or what. I’ll let y’all know when you can see ’em.
