Canedy: As you point out, Steve, newsrooms are maybe not equipped with the resources to fight some of these threats. That’s where organizations like the Pulitzers, journalism schools, institutes are going to have to unite and back up newsrooms, to use our resources to push back, to help litigate, to engage in our own communication efforts, to support journalists who are being assaulted, to the newsrooms that aren’t getting access to public documents or not having their FOIA requests responded to. I think you’re going to see organizations like ours do a lot more on this front, either independently or in collaboration with like minded partners in support of journalism..

He’s hard to miss, with his brown and gray dreads popping out like palm fronds from beneath his nylon cap, gold grills fronting his top and bottom teeth, and a silver rope necklace with a pendant of Jesus carrying the cross. He speaks in rapid fire cadences punctuated by the occasional “Ya feel me?”.
Know they really feel they have a reason for their negativity and aggression, but they do not know how to maturely convey the message to you. Thank them for letting you know how they feel. Let them know you appreciate them having the courage to let this matter out.
Can you give an example of that? Oh, easily. I have several students that I’m struggling to catch up with. One was in the process of cloning and identifying a gene. For Kent and Heidi Keller, who have cared for the two youngest Lanzetta children since March 1992, TPR promises a new beginning. They didn’t ask for the job, the Kellers emphasize; HRS, with the Lanzettas’ consent, drafted them. “We went into this really as a rescue operation,” says Kent Keller, a former assistant pastor at the Key Biscayne Presbyterian Church.
