LEARNING TO IMPROVISE

Brooklyn Heights, New York.

. . .  Shortly after I married, I applied for a job at a mid-sized Southern newspaper.  The editor who interviewed me said that a degree in television journalism prepared me to become a newspaper reporter about as much as a degree in Home Economics.  No, he didn't hire me but not too long after that I got a job at a small FM radio station.  The broadcast studio was embedded in the South Carolina backwoods and adjacent to a trailer park.  I wrote and read the morning drive news, assisted by a technician who was blind and sometimes typed my copy on leftover black construction paper.
