Thank you Sen Durbin! America is hoping your colleagues join you soon. We need to FEEL and SEE the COURAGE of the US Senate, if it still exists. Beyond you, and too few others, the Legislative Branch is a disgrace and one that needs a jumbo hearing aid!  https://twitter.com/SenatorDurbin/status/953387066083168256

One of the problems we have is that the 24 hr. news cycle is now a 72 hr news cycle. Trump gets too much exposure because WE let him have it by watching the talking heads repeat over and over again ALL his stupidities. READ instead of watching repetitive garbage 3 and 4 days old!

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Not since college

How is social media changing news?

I'm afraid social media is corrupting solid reporting as we once knew it. Too many cooks and too much ego involved in Tweets and posts etc.

What does it mean to be a journalist?

It means writing things that will make readers want to read, think, and -- at its best -- respond.
