Editing and More

Lifelong Impact

I don't think there are many people outside my family who made a bigger impact on my life than Charlie Marler, who passed away last week in Abilene, Texas. Decades after my last journalism class with him, I hear his voice in my ear when I write, and sometimes I still...

Two Decades of Remembering
