Great posting. I remember my days as a news writer for Lehigh University's Brown and White... interviews were hard to come by at times with administrators, so I would be running from one side of the campus to the other, then writing my story during a marketing lecture in order to meet what I thought was a fairly tight deadline. And I was like your colleagues, getting as much on paper as possible before even thinking about the lead. Anyway, thanks again for the interesting post. Glad I stumbled across your blog.
