Do you have a degree in journalism?
Just curious.

Why do I co-anchor the VA News? I never bothered to ask myself that question. Because they let me and I enjoy anchoring the news, I guess. The studio sits three floors up so I don't mind the trip.

I have no degree in journalism. I don't consider what I do journalism. I read words on a television screen, pretend to pay attention when other people are talking, and ask questions of a green wall as if someone is there. Finally my ADHD gives me purpose.

So you don't write the news that you read? Do you get paid?


As an actor, I have considered practicing journalism as a different discipline, and I would want the degree so that I understand my responsibility and my limits thoroughly, and I would want to investigate or direct investigations the news I read as a rule.

Sounds interesting though.

I barely READ what I read, and I barely call it news, more public affairs fluff. I have different standards for that which does or does not have my name as a writer.

Considering the source of the news, I'm not surprised about the fluff part.
I don't think it requires quite the same standards.

... I expected you to break into a joke.

Miss Niagara visited the facility and immediately caused four heart attacks. Vigilant medical staff were able to quickly revive the stricken men, who asked to see her once more.


Urm. Well. I blame the Indian food left-overs I had for dinner.

One of the lines was "Residents at the Albany Medical Center got a special treat with a surprise visit from Miss Buffalo."

I said it right the first time, but it took all my reticence not to read "Residents at the Albany Medical Center got a special treat with a surprise visit from Miss Blowjob."

I am going to Special Hell.
