1-0

There are 4 things the Yankees can take away from last nights win. First, Schilling is hurt more than anyone let on to believe. Second, the Yankees can still get timely hitting from top to bottom of the lineup (the Lofton home run was huge). Third, it's gotta be tough on the Sox that they couldn't come back on a very exhausted Rivera. And fourth, the Yankees won the game, which hurts the Sox even more.

I don't know if I so much agree with Pedro starting tonight. It's gonna be a rough atmosphere, although he is a big game pitcher. I just don't know what else he has left. Then again, he could turn it all around. Who knows. That's why they play the games.

I'll take my man Pedro in Yankee town. I know there are a lot of nasty numbers that people can throw up to show that he is in decline, but I'll never give up on the best pitcher of my team and my generation. Personally, I think he is struggling a little bit to define his identity as an older pitcher, but that the Anaheim start showed he is still an ace in his heart and in his arm.

Go Sox.

My name is Eunseong Kim, and I am a Ph. D student at the School of Journalism at Indiana University. I am currently working on the Ph.D dissertation, and I am emailing you to invite you to participate in my survey.

The primary purpose of the dissertation is to examine Internet users’ media use in relation to the 2004 Presidential election. I am particularly interested in learning about blogging and its impact on people. Blogging, especially political blogging, has become a popular and important campaign method in the 2004 presidential election campaign. Supporters of presidential candidates have organized and communicated through blogging so effectively that both Democratic and Republican National Committees granted press credentials to some political bloggers. While blogging rapidly garners popularity among people, empirical examination of blogging and its impact on people have been rare. Information you provide in this survey will help us understand communication behavior (media use), political attitudes, and political behaviors of bloggers and provide a useful and important material for empirical examination of blogging and its impact on people.

Your participation in this survey is crucial to the success of this study and to understanding the effects of this new communication phenomenon. The following link takes you to the survey questionnaire. It will take approximately 20 minutes to complete the questionnaire. After the data analysis, the report will be written in aggregate terms, and thus, no participant will be identified in any forms.

The URL for the survey site is http://www.hg4u.com

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Eunseong Kim
