What You Don't See

People in the news business deal with calamity and destruction on a daily basis. Don't cry for us. It's the life we chose.

Still, it doesn't hurt to have something nice to look at now and then. This is our newsroom Christmas tree. It helps make those long nights of fires, crashes, shootings, stabbings and domestics almost tolerable.

The tree is out of camera range, so this is likely the only chance you'll get to see it. The tree will be part of our newsroom for the next few weeks, and it's an extremely welcome addition.

It's only a tree, but it means a lot more.
