Inquiring Minds

License for Fun

“[A]s much responsibility as our profession carries, we have a comparative advantage in having fun. Being a journalist is endlessly exhilarating. Most people stop taking field trips after they leave grade school. Journalism is one field trip after another. We can knock on any door and ask questions. And if they don't let us in, we can go around to the back.”
  John Maxwell Hamilton,
 journalist, author and journalism educator, 2002
