David Perlman on 63 years of reporting

If you keep at a job for more than six decades, you get a lot of windows. At least that's how it's worked out for the San Francisco Chronicle's 94-year-old science reporter (and 53-year NASW member) David Perlman, judging from the photo with this Los Angeles Times profile: "He was born in 1918, a decade before the discovery of penicillin. Pluto had yet to be discovered, let alone demoted. The ballpoint pen was invented the year he got his first real newspaper gig."
