FF, I've never been a big fan of the media. Clowns who call themselves "reporters" or "journalists", just morons making up stories to suit their own ends.

Well this lady is a journalist. She has written a good factual heartfelt story. I'm glad she got to meet Tully, I'm sad she is personally affected by his tragic death.
Hand in Pants, I'm thinking, my god, that IS huge!!!!!!!!

Totally agree on all the above.
Well said HIP!
Simpathy and congrats to the YL who made the story.
Clean, Honest and factual.
A rare media based reflection.

Have to agree, lets hope she takes this new found empathy to the rest of her career and spreads it around to some of her colleagues
