TONY DODERO I've written before how many of our talented staff writers, editors and photographers outgrow our newspaper and move on to bigger things. It's kind of the natural pecking order of journalism, though sometimes I feel like it's all backward. Community news is so important, at least in my estimation. But that's just the way of the world, I guess, and as is to be expected we've lost some good staffers of late, but the upside is that more talent is always waiting in the wings to fill the void.

"When forced to leave my house for an extended period of time, I take my typewriter with me, and together we endure the wretchedness of passing through the X-ray scanner. The laptops roll merrily down the belt, while I'm instructed to stand aside and open my bag. To me it seems like a normal enough thing to be carrying, but the typewriter's declining popularity arouses suspicion and I wind up eliciting the sort of reaction one might expect when traveling with a cannon. "'It's a typewriter,' I say.
