No kidding. That's the bottom line. Idiots get hired as designers because
they can match colors, but they couldn't take pictures to save their lives.
And word people run the business. I am often tempted to get out of
journalism and into commercial because if I have to be a whore, I might as
well be a well-paid one. :-)  (Don't get me wrong, I don't think commercial
photographers are really whores, but journalists who don't act like
journalists are.)

But then, I work at a paper that has a commitment to documentary
photojournalism. So as long as that stays true, I don't mind working here.

Mind if I put your LIFE editor story on the NPPA list?
