...Is New Again

I don't know if you're the same way, but I can handle adding a candle to the birthday cake every 12 months.  However, it's often difficult to think of other people as getting older.

I had a strange experience the other morning.  We have a new weekend desk assistant here at WNEP.  He seems like a bright kid, and a good addition to the staff.  His father, yes, his father, was my fiercest radio news competitor back in the early 80's.

I knew my colleague had children, and if I sat down to do the math, a post college aged child would have been no surprise.  Still, it was startling.

The road to get here has been long, and there's still a lot of highway left in the distance.
