    layden makes a good point.
    if you find the right topic - non-personal but intriguing - guys will talk.
  2. Henry,
    I think you and I are the only ones who discuss - muchless read - these things.
    SMG is one of favorite sites to read.
  3. Whoa whoa whoa, I'm all about these! SMG is really a great site...

    Count me as an SMG fan. Liked the nugget about Layden sitting on the conference call with the SI reporters, the editor drops "let's write a story on Cover 2" and the line is silent for 15 seconds. But Layden takes it, does a great job with it and gets tons of feedback.
  5. Of all the Q&A's on that site -- and I think I've read them all -- I thought this was the best as far as talking about the craft of journalism. I think he really gave a lot of thoughtful answers, especially about the mechanics of putting together a story, from the idea to the printed word. Must reading for everyone, not just the youngsters. I like the site, but I enjoyed this one.
