When I got the asteroid named after me recently, I sent along a press release to my local paper The Daily Camera, because they like to run local-astronomer-makes-good stories. Their science reporter, Laura Snider, agreed to talk to me and last week I went down there and chatted with her for quite some time. It's refreshing to see a reporter with a real interest in science!
Her report just came out today, and it's nice! So, fellow "cosmos junkies", check it out. :-)
