Career Advance for Newspaper Editor

Makes sense to me!

Terri Burke, former editor of the Abilene Reporter-News, has been named executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas.

Burke, 56, will begin work at the ACLU of Texas on Tuesday. Her duties will include lobbying, fundraising, administering the organization and communicating with the public.

Burke said her new job seems like a continuation of her work in the newspaper business.

"I wanted to be a journalist because I thought journalism was a way to further the democratic process," Burke said

I assume that Ms. Burke knew exactly what she said. After all, journalists are supposed to understand text.

Ricardo! Hey!! New Possiblities for YOU!
