A few months ago on a segment of 5×8, I passed along this story of Dr. David Nichols, a doctor who “adopted” an island in the Chesapeake Bay and brought health care to those who needed it. Even after he retired, he continued to fly to the island. He said it was “a moral obligation.”
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
