My boss, who is both general manager AND editor in chief at my paper called himself a reporter Wednesday.
It hit me. He’s still a reporter. He may have to deal with budgets and cost analysis and decision making, but he’s still a reporter.

That one is actually in my Catholic Daily Planner this week, and I love it. It may go up on the wall at my desk.

Have a great weekend!
God bless.
