My half-hour as a college professor


I spent 30 minutes this morning speaking to students in Josh Ambrose’s newspaper practicum class at McDaniel College in Westminister, Maryland. No, I didn’t travel there, but did it by Skype. I had a fantastic time talking with Hannah, Nicki, Jimmy and Becky (not in the order shown) about their goals in the new era of journalism. That was after I told them how much our Cardinals are looking forward to beating their Orioles in the World Series. 😉
