Written by Ira Koretsky
Children say the most honest things, don’t they? Over the weekend, my family went to Washington, DC National Zoo for a child’s birthday party. We walked visiting various animals like the elephants, sea otters, and lions. After eating tasty cake and ice cream at the end of the party, we ended up walking with some friends. They happen to have an inquisitive, bright-eyed three-year old son. As we were almost to the exit, I overheard the little boy say to his mother, “We can’t go. It’s jail.

I've met a lot of journalists over my career. He has a insightful grasp of the business side of journalism. And he wants the interviewee to be successful, really successful.  After receiving my invite to his book launch party, I asked him if I could share it and invite othes. "The more the merrier," he said. Come out and join us on Tuesday 29 September. The reviews list reads like…
