    Glaringly missing from this article are the location, cost and time.

    This may be the 21st century but the 5 w’s still need to be observed in journalism.
    Even in fluff pieces.

    You know, Daniel, I was pretty bummed out when Chris Phillips was leaving, but it didn’t take long to get over it. You have been awesome on the news and I love how you handle things as a moderator. Thanks for the smiles.
