Pressed for time
Gary Coleman, 42, the child star of the smash 1970s TV sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes" died last week.
I had read the day before of his recent sling of illnesses and that he had been hospitalized as well.
As I was shooting another assignment, I got the call to head over to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center for a press conference. Coleman had died.
I rushed over with our videographer to cover the presser.
Back in Baltimore I felt like there was always some sort of press conference. Utah County doesn't really have much going on, so I guess in that respect that's the reason I haven't really shot many in Utah.
Alas, there was a slew of news media there. I had to step back to really take in this non-visual presser to open light to others how packed it was.
