ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Looking back to my college work on the Mizzou student newspaper ( “The Maneater”  of course named after MU’s  maneating tiger mascot… ) I am wondering what are the odds that I would began my career covering serious student protests over free speech issues.

It began with protests over the Vietnam war. Now more than 40 years later, I have spent  a year reporting  the impact of the Ferguson Movement. The protests that came with it were both peaceful and violent.

I cannot imagine any other career that would give me  such  a seat in the middle of history and the chance to share what I learn with others.
