Lost Talks Are Going to Topeka City, Topeka City Here They Come

Filed under: Headline Shooter

A Kansan ABC affiliate picks as its "hot website" the newly and deservedly touted Silence of the City, where rejected Talks of the Town get a second chance to shimmy in the vaudeville spotlight after they've been yanked offstage by the editorial cane with a blat of the tuba. The newsreaders seem a bit baffled by it all ("They probably just get a ton of entries; I know The New Yorker is a popular magazine"), but it's a nice story with earnest footage of clicking through the blog, which is one of those ever-present, funny old-new media flirtations.
