🌺 Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in AM Nation. And thank you to Barbara Allen for being a "mother of many" — as her dad, my Grandpa Powers, used to joke. She had four, and my siblings and I still have a blast together.
- Mom's news rituals helped awaken my own. And to think of all the time she spent taking me to the Los Alamitos News-Enterprise ... the Long Beach Press-Telegram ... the Orange County Register ... the L.A. Times (again and again!) ... to KFWB, her all-news station, in Hollywood ... to Channel 4.
- It all helped wire me for this fascinating, fun, full life. So when you have a kid with a fascination: Ya never know!
