PD covers the news from behind the door

PD columnist Gaye LeBaron wrote today,

"When I first began reporting for The Press Democrat, back in the days when the newsroom was on the ground floor and people just walked in off the street and announced they had news for us, an elderly gent came by and was assigned to me--to take down his news. He said he had not been in Santa Rosa in 50 years and he thought we might like to hear about some of the changes he noticed."

"His visit made a tidy little story for an inside page. Hard to imagine now. Change isn't news anymore. There's so much of it.

That old guy ... wouldn't have made it past our security door--which is one of the big changes, right?
