Eleven months ago, I pulled into Parking Lot 5 and walked into the Pioneer Group offices on Michigan Avenue to begin my career as the associate editor. (I also slipped on the icy sidewalk in front, but that's another story for another time ...)
There have been many "firsts" since then, some expected. But like everyone else, the past year has been turned upside-down because of the coronavirus pandemic. The numbers paint a Jackson Pollock of those changes: In 11 months, I've had two different editors, seen two reporters move on to other things and have spent the past eight months — and counting — working from my basement.
