"At twenty-six, when he first went on the air, everybody looked at him and said, 'He's a callow fellow' He went off and got decades of experience. Peter and I were in Vietnam. We were very young, and we were ignorant, but I think we had good instincts. We stayed on long enough until we stopped being ignorant, and hopefully we held onto our instincts. That's what Peter did." - Peter Osnos, editor-at-large, PublicAffairs
