Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Taught journalism in college for a year. Got drafted and sent to Vietnam, where I was a paperwork warrior. Returned to Nashville, got married. Went to Saudi Arabia to work in a hospital. Moved to Augusta, Ga., where my wife got a couple of degrees and I got a reporting job at The Augusta Chronicle. Moved to Louisville in 1978 for an editing job at The Courier-Journal; have been here ever since and am now assistant metro and suburban editor. Adopted identical twin daughters, now 22 and engaged. All told, have visited 25 countries; haven't yet reached South America. I do a bit of volunteer work with the RPCV group here and remain interested in languages and people from other places.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Still worth more than any masters' degree I could have gotten in the same two years.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Larry Johnson, Joan Means, rest of the Adi Ugri crew.
