What Goes Around Comes Around
Dear Gillian, The Columbia Earth Day celebration was rained out last week. Seems fitting, in a way. Rain is the epitome of recycling: Raindrop to stream, stream to ocean, ocean to cloud, cloud back to raindrop. Repeat for a million years or so. Earth Day is...

Earth Day Every Day
Dear Dad, So here's the horrible truth, I totally missed Earth Day this year. I know, I know! You marched in the first Earth Day. You taught us about doing right, or as right as you can, by the environment before it was cool. We were composting things and r...
Dear Dad, So here's the horrible truth, I totally missed Earth Day this year. I know, I know! You marched in the first Earth Day. You taught us about doing right, or as right as you can, by the environment before it was cool. We were composting things and reusing things and recycling things long ...

Dear Gillian, Oh, to be in Portland right now. Not just to give you a big hug or to tussle with Evie and Briton. But also to be on the receiving end of a knowing glance from your Mom. Her company is lucky to have such a talen...

When I was a boy, white Christmas was distant concept. Yet it was always close at hand. I grew up in at the very northern peak of California’s Central Valley. My hometown of Redding is known by travellers far and wide as “th...

In praise of those different from me
I had dinner in Slovenia Wednesday. Well, not really in Slovenia, but in the warmth of Slovenian friendship. Bella and Julija, 2012 Over a big plate of čevapičiči (elongated Slovenian meatballs), I rekindled my friendship with Martin Jelovsek. Martin and hi...

Have fun, but I get Mom back
Dear Gillian, Oh,
to be in Portland right now. Not just to give you a big hug or to
tussle with Evie and Briton. But also to be on the receiving end of a
knowing glance from your Mom. I’m not jealous, but I do miss Cecile when she is on the road. The hou...

A boy and his mountains

Act your age
Each morning, I open my eyes, smile to myself and rejoice at being 18-years-old. Then I move. My
body has no shortage of devices to tell me that 18 was a long, long
time ago. “In your dreams” is literally the last vestige of my physical
youth. But my me...

Story
Tagline
Associate professor at the Missouri School of Journalism.
Introduction
I started a journalism career in the ancient era of smoky newsrooms and pica poles.  I grew up in Northern California, worked at seven papers in six states, picked up my MA at Texas, went over to the dark side of advertising and management and then to the University of Oregon for a Ph.D.
I've been an associate professor at the University of Missouri School of Journalism since 2001.  But I'm also a real person with grandkids, a dog and a wonderful wife who supports my journalism habit.
