News at Eleven: Deciding to put a personal slant on it

seemed to be what I might be good at. NewsHour is very interested in poetry, but they're also interested in not just that something's cute to add on at the end of their programming, but something that actually is integrated into the news. So for example, I'm from the Mississippi Gulf Coast, the area that was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina. And so I'm interested in visiting places that have suffered either natural or man-made disaster.
