Then the Evening Bulletin folded and intense local suburban coverage became the business model . About a week later, he called me and said he could hire me immediately, if I agreed to work as a “stringer,” same work, less money and less respect.
The Inquirer marketed suburban Neighbors sections, staffed by actual locals, reporters who had covered these same regions for the ring of smaller competing newspapers that surrounded the city. Some of my journalist friends at the North Penn Reporter in Lansdale had gotten jobs at the expanded Inquirer, so I decided to try. I expected to come to the interview and be offered a job or turned down on the spot. Then I started singing the National Rent-a-Car advertising jingle. My heart was in my throat, but I gathered all my courage and said, “No, if the Inquirer wants me, it’ll have to pay the full freight.” (Actually, I said it a little more crudely than that, but that’s all part of newspaper culture.) Two weeks later, Naughton called back and asked me what I would do if the Inquirer hired me.
First I talked to Glenn Guzzo, editor of the Neighbors section. Then I talked to Terry Bitman, who seemed to handle the nuts and bolts of hiring. My third interview was with Jim Naughton, the number three editor, and the one who would actually make the hiring decision. Later, I learned that Naughton had hired me because I was “a delightful wack job,” whatever that means.
He is the one who learned that my attention to detail included ironing the back of my blouse, even though it would be covered by the suit. We had a fun talk, mostly laughed — there were probably serious questions sprinkled in, along with discussions about news and journalism, goals, dreams, ambitions, etc. I’m pretty sure the Inquirer also liked my writing, not to mention my resume with journalism prizes earned every year.

In the late 1990s, Warren said he decided to test his theory that certain characteristics can predict compatibility and lead to more satisfying relationships.
The man who hired me as a reporter for the Inquirer wore a swami hat and had a vending machine topped with a giant plastic chicken in his office.
If you had a Southern drawl or a twang you were in, but if you lived in Mount Airy, Mayfair, or Montgomeryville, forget it.
Meanwhile, the paper had the reputation of treating the suburbs like an exotic locale, with reporters parachuting in, kickin’ it with their coverage, plastering their work on Sunday Page A1, and retreating back to Broad Street. He told me he’d like to hire me when there was an opening, although he didn’t say when that might be.
