9/30/2013 This kind note from Rick DeMarsh '68 "Checked in to see if I could get any news, stumbled across the copies of The Journalist posted by my old debate partner, Gordon Ridley. Thanks for putting those up, Gordon, I got quite a kick out of them. Fired off a bunch of memories, including how The Journalist was "published". Try explaining a mimeograph machine to your grandkids. I'm still in North Carolina but considering a move, what with our state legislature moving forward, into the past, trying to turn the clock back to 1950 around here."
