Five Followers?

This is so exciting! What should we talk about?

I ran into Don Forst, former editor-in-chief of The Village Voice, and asked him what I should do after I graduate...

"Find a rich husband." No thank you.

"Buy a bus ticket and go across the country. Get off at every major city and walk into a newsroom. Tell them they need to hire you because you’re good.”

If you go to UAlbany, take a class with Forst.

  1. Seven followers. That's sorta exciting? One of my regrets is that I never had a professor with Don Forst's life experience. He's right about the you being good part.
