Porch Quote 

A cautionary graduation message
"One would have to say there is getting to be something of a tradition of trouble caused by young journalists with unbridled ambitions and hyperventilated notions of careerism."
--Orville Schell, dean of UC-Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism, quoted in the Los Angeles Times. He was commenting on the case of Jayson Blair, a 27-year-old (former) reporter for The New York Times who the paper discovered was making up details in his stories or copying them from other newspapers.
