Our local newspaper is sending a reporter to the RNC in Cleveland. Brian Molongoski will head west to write about local delegates activities and the flavor of the convention. This is a good initiative and reminds me of the old days of journalism when a correspondent like the late Alan Emery was at the DNC the year I attended.
With today's technology filing photos and copy is easier, but in the end there is no substitute for boots on the ground.
For the 23 year old scribe it will be an event to remember and I hope he enjoys the opportunity.
