I have no regrets about launching Salon. For the life of me, I can't imagine doing anything else.
I came at age in the '60s, and initially my hopes and dreams were invested in politics and the movements of the time - the anti-war movement, the civil rights movement. I worked on Bobby Kennedy's campaign for president as a teenager in California and the night he was killed.
It's like a cast of actors; you're all working together closely under pressure to produce something everyday. And when we put up an issue, it's like the curtains opening on a new play. I really like that daily sense of surprise.
My favorite thing is still journalism. I'm almost 50. This has been my life ever since I was in college.
Journalism is not just a cause, it's also a wacky profession.
