Old man Winter is a state on mind and it may be on everyone's mind next Tuesday.

The paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of winter's demise are premature.

Although I never met her, Helen was a colleague of mine since I too worked at UPI. What is neededRead More today more than ever in the US news media is journalists with the cojones that Helen had. Instead of a bunch of mealy mouth toadies who infest government briefings and press conferences, and claim to represent the free press,Helen actually challenged the powers that be.

I worked with Helen for a few years covering the White House for UPI Radio Network. Although HelenRead More was not known for her prose, she always asked some of the toughest questions of POTUS, no matter the fallout. Yes, she was a trailblazer for women in journalism, especially for women who were striving to cover the top political beats, and who deserved to be there, but were often overlooked at the time. Helen was the official timekeeper of 30 minute White House news briefings, and once during the Ronald Reagan years when the President was asked a particularly tough question, he looked down at Helen and said, "ah Helen, er, uh, the time?... and Helen responded, "you have five more minutes." God bless Helen Thomas. Carol Van Dam

I don't understand how telling a president he has five minutes is any kind of achievement. I don'tRead More recall Helen Thomas ever writing a memorable word or breaking a story. She sat in a comfy room and asked questions--is this what a champion of the free press does? I'm a feminist, and I'll give her credit for being the first woman to sit in that room, but I hope that women today to do more than sit around.
