In college, I had a professor who told me I was the worst reporter he had ever seen and that I should get out of the business while I’m ahead. I can tell you I have never forgotten that. This, after basically failing me in his class despite the very report that I had turned in to him for my final project had also aired on a local TV station in Raleigh, NC.

TMJ Teeth Disorder
