Newspapers' reporting empowers us

I had the privilege of being with a group of newspaper publishers at the Georgia Press Association's winter gathering in Atlanta this week. It was one of those times I wish my mama and daddy still were around to see the crowd their little boy is hanging out with these days. Mama would be pleased. Daddy would be surprised.
