An unpaid Teen Page reporter at the Roanoke (Va.) Times & World News, under the Junior Achievement program at my high school.

Yes, indeed. I still miss the bright red Smith-Corona I took to college!

It lends greater immediacy to breaking news, add texture to enterprise reporting, and brings writers and readers closer together.
