as you know i grew up reading the Chicago Tribune
it’s a major reason i wanted to be a writer and go into journalism.
never did i think that i would ever become either of those things, but it happened.
during my time at the Tribune-owned LA Times i had lots of ideas.
most of them were rejected either directly or indirectly by “Chicago” aka Tribune.
little did i know that all i had to say was
yo, you should change the name of the company to tronc.
so the lesson i learned yesterday was
keep being creative, keep pitching ideas, shake off the rejections
one day they’ll say yes
tronc yeah they will
