Interesting humans

I've written two blog entries all about me. Enough about me. Tell me about you all. What's on your mind? What kind of stories do you want to read about?

Obviously you want the news -- breaking news, hard news, the important stuff. But how do you feel about stories that are simply entertaining, surprising, heart-warming or informative? You're probably going to see some stories like that from me, once I get my sealegs, so to speak. A lot of people call them "human interest" stories. That's fine with me -- I find humans interesting. 

For example, this week I met a 77-year-old man who is in better shape than most people I know in their 30s. This person volunteers his time to help people suffering from debilitating injuries recover and live fuller lives. That's interesting, right? You can read more about it in the print edition and online soon.

Well, if you have a good idea for a story, feel free to call me. I have a phone number now (501-505-1236) and hopefully I will have email before long.
