I told members of the Lakeland Association yesterday that reporters are wonderful, wonderful people who are extremely overworked and entirely underpaid. I’m not sure if they bought it.

I was speaking to and with association members at their annual tourism conference at the Ralph Engelstad Arena in Thief River Falls. The topic du jour was Dealing with the Media. It was part of my work release program from WDAZ.

Thanks to Laura for the invitation and to the group for not throwing anything at me. Quite the opposite, we had a lot of fun. I hope we can do it again sometime.
