How I found the newspaper
“Tina, what do you want to be when you grow up?” asked my third-grade teacher. I remember the scenario clearly. It was early in the school year and my teacher asked me and my 8-year-old classmates what we wished to be in the future. There was a chorus of “doctor,” “veterinarian,” “police officer” and one student shouted “millionaire!” When it was my turn, I puffed up my chest and proudly stated, “I want to be a writer.” Fast forward nine years later and my goal has roughly stayed the same.

A Special Prosecutor . . . For What?
So, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself. Great Just one question: From what? Yes, yes, Sessions is a good and decent man. He is a scrupulous lawyer who cares about his reputation. Thus, in stark contrast to Obama administration attorneys general, he strictly applied — I’d say he hyper-applied — the ethical standard that calls on a lawyer to recuse himself from a matter in which his participation as counsel would create the mere appearance of impropriety.
