He's young, he's new at this (he wasn't trained to report on radio), 
and although we talked for about 40 minutes, I am not sure he fully 
got the distinctions.  In fairness to him, he was restricted to 800 
words.  But on the other hand, I miss Dean Johnson, who truly got 
what radio was about and dedicated his reporting to it.  Today, most 
newspapers treat radio as an afterthought and don't even try to 
understand what is unique about it.
