“A politician once asked me to show him my license. He didn’t mean a Texas drivers license… he meant my journalism license.

I promise: I would have gotten one if they handed them out, but they didn’t. I spent more than 30 years investigating in radio and television without one.

And yes, now I have a license.”

– Wayne Dolcefino
