The Power of Print

Pynn Rogerby Roger Pynn

Sometimes print is still the most powerful medium.

Today’s Annapolis Capital editorial page is simply overwhelming.

As a former journalist who spent many hours in newsrooms toiling alongside colleagues who loved that business with all their hearts, I can’t imagine having the strength this team had today to pick themselves up and tell the horrible story that they are living through.

The otherwise blank page reads:

“Today, we are speechless.

 

“This page is intentionally left blank today

to commemorate victims of Thursday’s shootings

at our office.

 

“Gerald Fischman

Rob Hiaasen

John McNamara

Rebecca Smith

Wendi Winters

 

“Tomorrow this page will return to its steady

purpose of offering our readers informed

opinion about the world around them, that

they might be better citizens.”
