Happy to spot my dad in a Ben Bradlee retirement picture

Indulge me one more time. That's my dad Hobart Rowen, second to end, far right, applauding at Ben Bradlee's retirement. Call it throwback Wednesday. Thank you, cousin Carol, for pointing it out.

Your dad was fortunate to have worked in the newsroom of such a quality newspaperman. And it sounds like Ben Bradlee thought very highly of your dad.

Ben Bradlee once said "Everyone knew I had an overpowering interest in finding out the truth and getting it in the paper." If only the editors of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel were so compelled.
