  World Press Freedom Day
Today's a day worth remembering

I know a lot of folks are pretty skeptical about the media these days, but for every Bill O'Reilly or Geraldo Riviera (real name: Gerry Rivers), there are 10 professionals working to advance democracy, often at great risk to themselves and their families.

I'll be lighting a candle at St. Bride's (The Journalist's Church) here in London today. I encourage everyone to spend a few minutes thinking about the contribution journalists make to our democratic societies, and if you have any thoughts about World Press Freedom Day, please leave a comment.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
