As a journalist of the intrepid variety, I don’t always get to choose the story. When there’s a bloody revolt in Libya, a natural disaster in Jakarta, a financial crisis on Wall Street, I relinquish my desire to control events, roll up my sleeves à la Anderson, and report the hell out of the story for the greater good of mankind.
