To the Catholic Sentinel,

In 1972 Robert Pfohman taught me the value of the 20-word lede, an entire $25,000 (then) journalism education compressed into the price of a coffee break.

Over the years I have trained a cadre of correspondents with the same words, giving a crazed Army captain at an afternoon daily newspaper all the credit. These people have never heard of a p.m. daily.

I enjoy reading your paper. Keep up the good work, friend.
