    The Ink Slinger

    I am a court reporter. A keeper of the record. A fly on the wall. For over a quarter century, I have had a front-row seat in legal proceedings -- private depositions, public trials, town hall meetings! And just when I think I've heard it all, I am proven wrong! What most people don't know about court reporters is that while we seem stoic and hyper efficient, we have ears and eyes and a brain in between. But we cloak our emotions, stifling our laughter. . .and our tears. . .as we make the record. This interactive blog is dedicated to my reporting peers, a place where I share courtroom chaos and other fun tales!
