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.
