A thought

Once when I lived in Pennsylvania, I met famous journalist Earl Caldwell.

Caldwell worked for the New York Times and a case involving his coverage of the Black Panthers went all the way to the Supreme Court.

He got his start in journalism in a county bordering the one where I lived at the time. Old friends from his first newspaper came to see him at the function I was at. Caldwell told his friends that they had had great lives. He, on the other hand, had had a great career.

Just a thought that's been running through my head today.
