The Courier Journal ran an extensive profile of me on January 4, 1992. The excellent writer C. Ray Hall followed me for three days. I was worried that I was about to be indicted. What in the world would be that interesting that required three days of observation?
The piece turned out to be the most thorough, thoughtful, and accurate piece ever written about me. Mr. Hall told me that it was the longest profile the newspaper had ever done on a media person.
These photos were never published but were given to me after the publication was released. Staff photographer Pam Spalding was terrific. She snapped a zillion pictures of my family and me and they were incredibly respectful and touching. Ms. Spalding made me at ease in front of the camera so that I could just be myself.
Both the writer and photographer were absolutely the most accurate reporters I have ever encountered.
