Photo with 2 notes
Today I covered the visit of a U.S. Senator, a stabbing, a shooting and an outbreak of bacterial meningitis — none related to the other. My bosses drive me crazy. I work too much. I think about unread EPA reports and unreported stories in my sleep. I play Scrabble because I can manipulate words without needing to put them into a sentence. I love reporting. I love stories. I hate it when people say, “The media.” I know that what I do is a service, a sacrifice, a requirement for informed democracy.
I do it for those hooligans in the photo.
I am a police reporter.
