Front Row Seat


Someone much wiser than I once said that news is "history caught on the fly."

So true.

As I write this, it is very early Sunday morning.  I'm putting the finishing touches on our morning newscast.  Among the stories, a criminal indictment and possible arrest of a former president and some of America's biggest banks on the financial edge.

Step back and think about that for a moment.


And if that isn't enough, there is the threat of China getting involved in the war in Ukraine and North Korea launching missiles around Asia.

Double wow!

A former supervisor once compared the newsroom to a factory.  We simply keep cranking it out.  Hey, that's our job.  But, when you slow down for a moment and think about what's going on around this planet of ours, it really is awe inspiring.  We life in fascinating, and occasionally very dangerous times.
