Let Gary Webb Speak.../Permita que Gary Webb hable...

When I heard Gary was gone, my first instinct was to go to the tape.  My biggest regret of the 1st J-School was that I didnt take part in, or record, his investigative journalism workshop--at the time, I thought I would benefit more from learning web skills.  But I knew I had a recording of him speaking on a panel discussion in Merida--the theme was "How to Write on Deadline"--Gary spoke first, followed by Maria Botey Pascual.  I listened intently, hoping for some jewels, some insight into his mind, but most of the discussion was nuts and bolts of how to write under pressure--Gary was there to teach, not preach or wax philosophical.  But then came a student asking about the "dilemma" that the more time a reporter spends on a story, the more emotionally involved they become--It ended wiith the question---Do you believe In objectivity?
