Early this morning, November 9th 2006, world renowned reporter and journalist Ed Bradley passed away due to comlications from his ilness of leukimea at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York at the age of 65. I know that the death of a person is not something that is very interesting but I felt that being that this is a communications class that a tribute to Mr. Bradley was in order. Born to a single parent home in 1941, Bradley saw his first action as a field reporter covering the Philidelphia riots during the 1960's. He then went on form there to cover the Paris Peace Talks and the Vietnam War where he got hit by a stray bullet. Most of you including myself will remeber and best know Ed Bradley for his award winning work on CBS News' 60 Minutes. On his time working for CBS between 1981 and 2006, Bradley won the Emmy award 19 times, the Robbert F. Kennedy Journalism award, and was most noted for his report on adis in Africa titled " Death by Denial", which earned him the Peabody award. All in all watching 60 Minutes on T.V will never be the same to me without Ed Bradley who I always looked up to being that he is a great African -American journalist and broadcaster, which is what I want to be when im finished with school. As an African-American society I feel taht we need more role modles like Mr. Bradley who are in high stature positions for our youth to see. He will b greatley missed by all. Best wishes and condolences to his family and close friends. R.I.P ED BRADLEY...................

You choose interesting topics to write about, but you need to pay more attention to technical details. Each post must have a TITLE (none of yours do; you are writing titles in the paragraph section, not in the title section), and each should have at least one link. Use paragraphs, and watch your spelling. Edit and revise your work, and view it to check what it looks like, before you publish it.
