In my 30 years on the staff of Physics Today, I have had a unique opportunity to report on some of the great discoveries made in physics, and to identify the topics capturing the interest of physicists. At the same time, I covered the changing scene in science policy in the US and abroad. While working as a reporter and editor, my life was punctuated by a number of adventures.
