A little belated....but happy St. Patty's day!
One of my favorite teachers in college was a professor named Ed Tunstull. He was My journalism teacher, and one of the most knowledgable men about the medium of writing I have ever met. He had been the Editor-in-chief of the Times Picyune for many years, and a reporter almost his entire life.
By chance, he was also Irish.
Every St. Patty's day, Ed would come to class in a specially made white tux, dressed like a leprachaun, complete with the pointy shoes. His talent for having fun is something that I hope I share with him, and I will never forget.
