    Wandering Eye: How millennials access media, the battle over scrapping in Detroit, and more
    The Media Insight Project, a joint research effort by the American Press Institute and the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, has put out a new report about how millennials access news, and it has both good and bad news for journalism's economic future.

A 19-year-old from San Francisco (Ed. note: of course), for instance, said he "wouldn't pay for any type of news because as a citizen it's my right to know the news."

    The Oyster Counters: On the water with the scientists on Maryland's 75th annual Chesapeake Bay oyster survey
    It’s dark outside, and the pre-dawn Monday morning traffic in Baltimore’s Harbor Tunnel is light. I just made a mad dash out of bed, into my truck, and to the ATM and gas station, thinking I’d overslept to make a timely 7 a.m. arrival...
