Press pass

I had to enter a federal building today. After the metal detector, while retrieving my belt, shoes and watch, I showed a guard my press pass. He asked if my paper used to be the one he’d delivered growing up. We traded memories of the old newsroom, and I managed not to crumble into dust.

A screen inside the Edward Roybal auditorium inside the Ronald V. Dellums federal building Tuesday, February 14th, 2023 in the 1300 block of Clay Street in Oakland, California shows a Flickr image of police officers carrying out a warrant service during Operation North Star 2, a recent United States Marshals Service interagency fugitive apprehension operation.
