As a child, my sister and I had very fruitful imaginations, and I would think that I wanted to be one profession or I'd want to have this experience in life.

To be five years old is to be surprised by life. I'm amused by my children's awe at quotidian things – a toy helicopter, a bubble bath, the visible tentacles on a plate of calamari.

My parents got ahead in the news business with wits, guts, and a creative interpretation of 'fair game.' They leased their first helicopter in 1985, when KTLA news crews were on strike.
