This is part of a message I posted as a comment, but I thought it might be missed and I'd really like some feedback from the people who visit my blog.
. . .I've covered some pretty big breaking news stories, like the shuttle crash, the Peterson investigation and trial, the Dallas church shooting, the return of Elizabeth Smart, and recently President Reagan's funeral (that's just off the top of my head). Some of these have cool stories or behind the scenes points of interest (not like my run-in with the San Diego Navy base security, that was just silly). Should I be dipping into the past history pool? A lot of news tends to be forgotten, even by the people who cover it. I know the people involved are affected in ways I can't imagine and sometimes that does sadden me. What I witness is often traumatic and emotionally scarring for the people involved. Often, all I can do is be professional and sensitive to the nature of the stories that I cover. As much as I enjoy my job, I'd love to never cover another funeral or intrude on another person's time of grief.
I'm starting to rant, but the question remains. Does anybody want to know the stuff from the past?
