Opinion: Old, new ideas in newspapers not so differentNearly 30 years ago, when I worked at the daily newspaper in Pierre, a fellow South Dakota editor engaged me in a conversation about the way to keep people reading newspapers in a world of pictures and audio.
The editor, long since retired, was a big and hearty Irishman who loved his craft and the people who practiced it. From my first days with The Associated Press throughout my career as a reporter, he was a mentor in all things newspaper, and a friend in all things, period. He was one of a half a dozen or so newspaper people who always made me feel proud to be involved in the business of collecting and reporting the news.
