Wondering what's really going on in Ferguson?? Me Too.

  The real story of what's happening in Ferguson, MO needs to be told. The media doesn't seem to be fully up to the task, so it's going to be up to regular people to devise a way to get reliable news out to the rest of the world. With all the tools we have at our disposal this shouldn't be an impossible thing to do. At the same time we should be pushing the established media to improve on the service they've been delivering.

 Let's do our best the make sure that the citizens of Ferguson stay on the radar and don't become victims of apathy. Let's keep our social media lines open and try to find the most accurate reporting that we can.
