I Was A Messenger

for Time magazine at the 1984 Democratic National Convention held at Moscone Center in San Francisco.
Here’s my badge:


Mario Cuomo was the great orator at the convention, earning thunderous applause. He was the “big” story….Walter F. Mondale & Geraldine Ferraro were on the Dem ticket.

What I really did was send wires to New York, that is, I typed up (on a computer) the reporters’ coverage of the speeches and other colorful stories from the convetion. [It always helps to be able to wear different ‘hats’]

P.S. The posting of the 1984 badge is not meant to reveal my poliitical leanings.
