It was a great job. It was fantastic. I covered everything there was to cover. I covered politics and murders and trials and movie stars and president’s daughters’ weddings. It was a very small staff. There was a lot of news. You were allowed to write very much with a sense of humor and a certain amount of derision even. We were not The New York Times, and we knew that, and it was a great way to become a writer because you could really find your voice.
