NYT's @christophclarey says up real late Saturday morning in Melbourne to get us the latest on the @DjokerNole visa drama. Meanwhile, I had barely woken up in Arizona on Friday morning...That's one hell of a time difference.

It would now be nearly 15 times longer, close to 1.4 miles long.

You know the Vietnam Memorial? If you replicated the design for those Americans who have died of Covid-19, the wall of names would be about 11 times longer than that -- or more than a mile long. And with 2,000 Americans dying a day, the wall would grow about 17 feet each night.

I accidentally deleted the best Tweet of my life, so here it is again. Last week’s take home pay. This after eight years in the field covering some of the goriest crimes imaginable. Also, I was recognized last year as one of Gannett’s best, for my work.

This is a @Gannett journalist. This is why we are fighting for a $50K starting salary, raises based on experience and cost of living adjustments in our @azrepublicguild contract. Gannett journalists are drowning.

PHX Sky Harbor Airport has a TSA worker shortage, which will impact travelers at Terminal 4. As of Friday, the B&D checkpoints will close ... meaning longer wait times at A&C. They're blaming Covid sick calls among TSA agents.

“There’s a lot of confusion that again we’re seeing another talented host walking out the door . . . for unspecified opportunities. There’s concern that this is not treated or viewed by leadership as the crisis that it is.”

I loved public media, but too often it felt like working in a walled garden, presuming that our audience just "gets it" and we don't have any rivals or predators. But today's media landscape forces us to raise our game and sharpen our skills in challenging (sometimes scary) ways.

NPR is better for having an inclusive workforce. But it would be far worse if that workforce thought it had nowhere to go except @NPR . Reaching our potential requires new avenues for growth and possibility. There's a huge difference between feeling safe, and feeling stuck.

She opened doors for me in so many ways and taught me so many things - not least how to be a host. It has been difficult this year to say goodbye to @nprgreene @lourdesgnavarro @NoelKing @RadioMirage and more. If NPR doesn’t see this as a crisis, I don’t know what it’ll take.

Kids are off to school and I'm pretty sure they'll come back w/ omicron. But, wow, is it blissfully quiet "at work" today.
