Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog
Public Corruption in Chester County, PA
I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

Do you wonder what you can do with a DSLR Nikon D90 and a DSLR Cannon EOS 5D mkII in video?
Although the lenses used were sometimes very costly the Nikon D90 costs about $800.00 and the Cannon 5D mkII about $2700.00. The point is that they both produce video that at least on a small screen looks like it was done on a Hollywood type camera.

There are several videos shot with each camera. There is one combination time lapse sequence video shot on a Nikon D700 and video shot on HV 20 with two photojournalists.

For all the videos go to:
Printed news with ink on paper may be near the end of its cycle.
The “Guardian” is what I would call an up to date newspaper.
Journalists have just begun to experiment with new tools and technologies.
Sony is experimenting with high definition cell phone video.
I think that we are at a new dawn of journalism. We may be “reading” something like a newspaper but more like a high definition video screen on a flexible screen that we can fold up and carry - watch and listen.
The main obstacle is not talent, or digital capture technology. It is the delivery; the lack of universally available high output broadband and wireless broadband coupled with the present need to almost be a computer nerd to be able to see it. The current crop of internet providers is falling over the obstacles that they put in each others way to gain a monopoly and in the process bringing the whole industry down.
Wireless broadband can only be marginally successful with a limited audience. Hopefully the Obama Administration can build up our wireless broadband and bring it to everyone.
