Photo of the Day: Where It All Began

I've been spending Thanksgiving in Asheville with my family and today, my son and his fam went downtown with me to be introduced to my hometown.

One of the stops along the way was the Citizen-Times, where I began in the newspaper business in August, 1964, as a copy boy in the sports department of the Citizen. I couldn't type the day I was hired and I went to work that day. Not long after that--18 months or so--I was the editor of the afternoon Asheville Times.

Damn building hasn't changed a bit from the outside. Hope it has inside. It never was much to write home about, but the lobby was wonderfully art deco (you can see that on the front, too).
