One ofrepparttar drawbacks of podcasts isrepparttar 138516 element of time. Whereas traditional broadcasts take place real time, thus allowing them listener interaction, podcasts are time shifted. Again, like Tivo, individuals can stop, pause, rewind, and fast forward through podcasts; whereas listeners to traditional broadcasts do not have this luxury. Podcasts in general should not be used as a method to contact or provide warning to listeners, asrepparttar 138517 receiving individual may fast forward overrepparttar 138518 message or pauserepparttar 138519 podcast before ever hearingrepparttar 138520 warning. Additionally, podcasts do not haverepparttar 138521 luxury of listener interaction sincerepparttar 138522 concept of time does not apply. Even with these downfalls, podcasting is an excellent choice for individuals who wish to use their iPod, computer, or mp3 player to listen to an audio program. Podcasts will become more widespread asrepparttar 138523 technology and audience advances, so listeners will have greater opportunity to hear whatever it is they desire!

The Greatest Cartoon Character of Them All...

Written by Ed Williams

Continued from page 1

"That boy's so dumb, he thinks a Mexican border pays rent."

"That dawg's busier than a centipede at a toe-counting contest."

"The snow's so deep,repparttar farmers have to jack uprepparttar 138515 cows so they can milk 'em!"

“Gal reminds me ofrepparttar 138516 highway between Fort Worth and Dallas. No curves.”

"Did ya see that hawk after those hens? He scared 'em! That Rhode Island Red turned white, then blue. Rhode Island, red, white, and blue! That's a joke, son, a flag-waver! You're built too low. The fast ones go over your head. Ya got a hole in your glove. I keep pitchin' 'em and you keep missin' 'em! Ya gotta keep your eye onrepparttar 138517 ball! Eye. Ball. Eyeball! I almost had a gag, son--a joke, that is!"

“That woman’s as cold as a nudist on an iceberg.”

"I've been a good sport about this up till now, but that boy's forcing me to use stronger measures."

“That dog's as subtle as a hand grenade in a barrel of oat meal.”

“You look like two miles of bad road.”

See what I mean? The best thing is, I could post up several more pages of these classic lines. Without question, Foghorn Leghorn wasrepparttar 138518 greatest cartoon character of all-time. But he was even more than that - y’all see, Foghorn Leghorn wasn’t just a cartoon character, he was a rooster. A Southern rooster. With that accent, where else could he come from? He’s one of us. And just like rock music, gospel music, football, women, fried chicken, chili dogs, beaches, or anything else you want to lay onrepparttar 138519 table,repparttar 138520 very best stuff comes fromrepparttar 138521 South. It’s as simple as that. And if anyone out there doesn’t want to believe me, fine, just send me some money and we’ll sponsor an essay contest based onrepparttar 138522 following theme:

“Who Wants to Move to Rhode Island?”

The winner will get a one-way ticket coach fare ticket there, plus a video tape or DVD full of their favorite Rhode Island animated character’s cartoons...
