While I missed the online chat with Tom Brokaw, I caught the transcript. (Gather.com)
Not being there LIVE doesn't mean it was any less entertaining or interesting. Highlights included a question about Kris Kristofferson, Brokaw mentioning that he's recovering from writing about the '60s, and how we're not able to resolve the debate about when to go to war and why.
But my favorite quote from Brokaw had to be his response to whether or not he'd consider writing fiction:
"No. I think there's - for me - more drama, more suspense, and more narrative in non-fiction. For me."
Glancing at our own homepage, I can't disagree with him.
