In this month's Quill

I do my share of writing gratis, including right here on Creative Ink. But one I'm particularly enjoying is the monthly column on freelancing I pen for the Society of Professional Journalist's Quill magazine. Here's the latest column that was a direct result of my participation in the Ted Scripps Leadership Institute in June.

Peter's passing
Tuned in last night to the ABC News special on Peter Jennings. Brought tears to my eyes and lump to my throat. I was a Peter Jennings gal in the way that my husband is a Miller Lite guy. He was THE source when it came to network news. Every election night, it was Peter and Company. Sure I'd flick over to see what CNN was up to, but for great context and commentary it was always Peter. On the Millennium, no one did it better than Peter. He was downright punchy as the ball dropped on Times Square and darnit, he deserved to be after a masterful, marathon run. And during every breaking news and in-depth piece, it was always, for me, Peter Jennings. He will be missed...

Not you, Jill. Coolout is selling something on my blog and that really pisses me off. For whatever reason, I can't seem to delete comment on blogger.
