The year the Berlin Wall fell, and Chinese students were massacred at Tianamen Square in Beijing, and San Francisco was hit by the Big One, was the year that I decided to become a journalist. Before that I, having graduated from UC Berkeley with a BA in biochemistry, was working in cancer research, killing mice and bombarding their mammary cells with carcinogens. Then I got accepted to San Francisco State's creative writing school, and within the same semester I started freelancing for Pacific News Service, tasted a little fame, and thought I could become a writer.
