Catholicism at Cape Cod

I had a dream last night about Bob Woodward, one of the journalists who broke the Watergate scandal. Although I’ve met Woodward and I interacted with him regularly when he was my professor for a semester, he’s never been in my dreams before.

In the dream, Woodward popped into a team meeting at work to admonish me for my vocabulary choices. I should stop trying to convince him that “still” belongs in serious articles, he said.

It was an incredibly weird reminder of the multiple neuroses that come along with a career in journalism. If you’re not worried about how one of your sources will react to an article, you’re dreaming about a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist handing you a thesaurus.
