gosh, he looked so young at onset. think he was about 45 or 46 when he became the WH press secy; looked early 30s. today, read the announcement he is resigning… I believe the article said he was to take the summer off. in today’s picture, he looked about 20 years older than those taken [five and a half years ago].
previously, a reporter for Time prior to his stint with the WH – contrary to the slant of the announcement – a journalist is much different from a press secretary – and not even close if the journalist attempts honesty. I guess it isn’t the stress of a demanding job that ages you, it’s the stress of lying constantly.
