Jim Newton pen James Newton flute

Academic Jim

Wah hoo wah not wah-who-cares? to Jim Newton the former Paly Campanile Editor, The Dartmouth publisher, James Reston intern and LA Times editorialist and his new job teaching or reaching at UCLA, our tax dollars at work (although I still like him as a Dartmouth trustee someday, taking the David Shipler tap — and how is that for a lead, editor?)

Minght I humbly suggest a collaboration with James Newton the flutist, also at UCLA, at the Herb Alpert School?

Last saw Jim — and his parents, and wifey, I think — at Fox Theatre Redwood City on panel with Leon Panette with whom he wrote a book. Prior to that he was with Kamala Harris the next Senator from California, on a book tour about Ike.

The Fourth Estate has taken a beating but we are down but not out.
Do you still have that little label pin of “Santa Claus”?
