Don't be part of the news

One of the cardinal rules in journalism is, "Report the news. Don't be part of the news."

Well, today, at the coming-out party for Jose Hernandez's campaign for Congress, my notepad and pen got caught in the action, when at least a dozen kids pressed forward for autographs before I could grab my interview — another crowd member suggested my pen would be better than their pencils, and my pad would make a good writing platform.

Not wanting to disappoint the kids, I temporarily donated the services of my equipment. (Photographic proof below.)

Darn kids.
