"FTS" Greatest Hits, Volume 1
Jun 10, 2017 - 10:41 AM - by Swampy Meadows
Swampy Meadows's Avatar WEST BLOOMFIELD (MI) -- August 30, 1995 was a memorable day at CNN, where I happened to be working at the time. On that date Ted Turner’s global cable news network launched its interactive website, CNN.com. Here is what the home page looked like when it premiered:

Swampy Meadows's Avatar WEST BLOOMFIELD (MI) -- “FTS” first tried this concept a little over a year ago and for some reason over 1,700 of you actually clicked on it. I figured what the heck, let‘s try it again! No column, just random GIFs…the majority of which are actually sports-related.

Swampy Meadows's Avatar WEST BLOOMFIELD (MI) -- To quote the eminent philosopher/songwriter Jimmy Buffett:

Swampy Meadows's Avatar HOUSTON (TX) -- Recently I was in Houston for the WorkforceNEXT Spring Summit Petrochemical HR conference. At the end of the show, I grabbed a cab outside of the Hyatt Regency downtown to take me to George Bush International Airport, which is about a 45-minute ride if there isn’t any traffic. The cab driver looked in the rearview mirror and said that I looked like an NBA coach. I told him that more than one person has suggested that I resemble Brian Hill and that I had actually met Hill at a... [Read More]
