A reason why photos are important…

It may be a little crass or uncouth to say, but at the newspaper they called it a “kill.” Its not spoken as a negative thing. In fact, its actually a little humbling. As I was leaving my internship, the conversation went like this: “So, you did pretty well this summer. And, hey, you even

Today’s edition of “Only in America”…

***Facebook people click here for the real thing…*** So, last time we looked at a beauty contest for cows. In today’s episode of Only In America, we look at the great American Rubber Ducky Derby.

  “She has great form and a very feminine look about her.” No, they’re not talking about a swimsuit competition. They’re judging cows.

New things every day. I do love my job. It all seems just a little funny sometimes. I’m just a guy with a camera. And people talk to me and take me on tours with a simple sentence, “Hi, my name is Noah Darnell. I’m from the Daily News Journal.” And most of life as
