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.

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.
