Circa 1981: In the Massena Observer Newsroom
My early professional career spent working as a reporter for the Massena Observer, the then-hometown newspaper of Massena, New York. In this shot, you'll note details that could only be signs of those times: Dedicated Word Processor (not a PC), 1980s cheap Casio digital wristwatch, oversized eyeglasses, leather boat shoes, and old school Walkman-type headphones connected to a cassette player tucked very obtrusively into my shirt pocket. Coffee in hand, this was where many a late night was spent trying to assemble random unrelated events into stories that people would actually enjoy reading.
Today, I still drink too much regular coffee and I still wear polo shirts, even in cool weather. But my shirts are now size Large, instead of Medium.
