Sometimes I wonder why the hell I stick with the newspaper business. The pay’s lousy, the hours are all over the place and there’s more than enough stress.
Then I go to a New Mexico Press Association convention and I’m reminded that it’s not so bad.
I feel a certain camaraderie at such events, in large part because I’ve been involved in New Mexico newspapers for a dozen years now. I know a lot of publishers, editors and reporters around the state, and am proud to call many of them my friends.
