Joe Day has been a reporter for 50 years - with newspapers in Milwaukee and Providence, on three television stations in Boston and New Mexico public television and now, happily, for KSFR News in Santa Fe. Here he reports on events and issues of general interest, and especially pursues stories about the lives and thoughts of so-called "ordinary," non-famous people, believing that no one of us is truly ordinary.
