This is a good place to work. Especially compared to the Sick Word of Gannett (SWOG) - No corporate bullshit here, just good people trying to make a publication better.
For the many that don't remember I worked at the Star (1979-1985). I was privileged to work there with fine people and great journalists. Star alum Bill Sedivy - a good friend - recruited me to work at the Pal-Item in Richmond. That was 1988. It was a good year until Bill left. As city editor he absorbed much of the SWOG bullshit. But, he could only take so much, and moved on. In about 1989-1990 Gannett brought their minions in and it quickly turned into a cess pool. The managing editor from Louisiana was a flaming witch ... or is that spelled with a "b"? They promoted a part-timer to City Editor, and she had no idea what the hell she was doing. After being adjudged to be a "disruptive incorrigible," I was fired. That was one of my proudest moments in this biz - ha, imagine me an incorrigible. Today, the witch is back in La. writing books and publishing "feel good" gibberish. The no-nothing former city editor teaches Journalism at a university - go figure.
That's enough personal history. A hearty hello to everyone I used to know at the Star.
If you need any info about this place, I've been here for more than 7 years (apparently, they tolerate "disruptive incorrigibles." Call me, if you questions. As good journalists, I know you can find me.
Best, Eric
