Weighing in: My response to Jennifer Livingston

Like many people, every now and then, I’ll see or read something I find interesting and will post it on my Facebook page. Sometimes I’ll post the article, video, etc., straight with no commentary. Other times, I’ll add a comment about how amusing or interesting I found it — usually no more than a sentence or […]

The power of journalism: My thoughts on Seattle’s loss of Kathi Goertzen
