  1. Hey, however you can figure out a way to have other people pay you is cool, but you did go into newspapers during their dying days. Between your online writing and your print writing, though, you have what could be considered a multi-hyphenate, trusted brand. Use it for good and here’s to many positive wishes on making it profitable.


  2. Well, you got that right (as usual) Was chatting with Harvey Levin, who used to run the press room here, and he said that when he started in l998, it was mostly newspaper reporters, now I’m one of about two (and one was here because the AGU gave him an award). Guess it’s time for me to face reality.
