Hydrogen is the raw fuel that most stars 'burn' to produce energy.

Chris Ison said, during a journalism workshop that I attended this weekend, that taping one's interviews is a good thing, "but painful." He went on to say, this man who's won a Pulitzer for his reporting, that he hates to listen to all his dumb comments and questions when later transcribing the recording.

I found that remark to be a mixture of delight--even the pinnacles of success carry the same self-doubt as I--and reassurance--I'm not alone in my angst as I strive to be that Perfect Journalist. As if.
