A Brief Note to Thor Nystrom

Incredible.


Thor,

The media is filled with traditionalists. Many traditionalists say we should not write about ourselves and if we do, we should never disclose as much as you did. Those of us who follow rules with skepticism know they can help and hurt us. We understand that knowing when to break the rules is just as an essential skill as learning to follow them.

Thanks for breaking rules in life and in journalism.
