    Eric, you’re absolutely right. I’m just so completely used to the media treating me like a piñata that I hold my nose and pinch media links between my thumb and forefinger at arm’s length when pasting to PTU. I think Ben Rhodes’ quote holds up... “The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns… They literally know nothing.”

    I rememeber arriving at the Fair on our second day in early September of 1965. I also remember standing on that platform that night as we departed and looking back trying to absorb every shape and every color. I wanted to remember the view of the Fair forever. So far, I have.
