You Never Forget Your First One

Tom Bray, a great editor and better person

Tom Bray was my first editor out of school. He had a wild streak that allowed us to come up with some strange and spirited storytelling at the Desert Sun.

I ran into him twice after having him as my homeroom teacher senior year. 

The first time I was arriving home to see the folks for Christmas and he was handling luggage
at the airport. I don't think he recognized me. 

The second time was in a dustier area of downtown, on a side street that slopes down toward the river.

Best time to take one of his courses? Anytime really. After lunch is good. Worst time? He can be a bit much at 8:00 am.
