Yours truly had the remarkable experience of attending a brilliant, one man program, on the life of possibly the greatest, radio & television journalist in our history – The Play “Murrow” dealing with the work of the great CBS giant, Edward R. Murrow.  Actor, Joseph Menino, thanks to the brilliant research and writing of Joseph Vitale, brings to life a figure in a dynamically evolving period of news broadcasting that brought home to the Western World the Second World War, and further brought us to the dramatic demise of one of the most evil political figures in the past century, Joseph McCarthy.  I hope the opportunity will take place that will enable every student to learn what journalism of the highest integrity can mean and with our political turmoil today, how Edward R. Murrow would have handled such with the skill of a surgeon.
