Getting to know new colleagues

In the interest of getting to know prospective new colleagues, here's a link to an exerpt from a recent article in the Georgetown Journal of International Affairs by John Walcott, the bureau chief at Knight Ridder Washington. John is widely known as the architect of much of the celebrated journalism that so distinguishes the KR bureau. We met briefly a couple of times in Washington last week, and I'm looking forward to getting to know him better.

  1. I think it may be the case -- regrettably, of course -- that press freedom is a lot like the right to vote. When people are content and comfortable, they pay less regard to journalism and free speech than when things are bad, just as people tend to vote more often when the stakes are higher and not vote when they're generally happy.
