Ryan Lillis’ blog title sounds awfully familiar

Ryan Lillis has started up a blog in the Sacramento Bee to cover things in the city, yet there’s something awfully familiar about it.

The name of the blog is City Beat, which is extremely similar to the title of this one, the North Sac Beat.

Now I’m not going to act like a child. Words like “Beat”, “Times”, “Post”, and so on are not exactly copyrighted and exclusive; New York doesn’t have the right over Los Angeles to the word “Times”.

Still, I must admit it is a little disappointing considering I’ve been a partner with the Bee’s Sacramento Connect for almost a year now and the blog has been in existence since 2008.

The name is catchy though.
