SACRAMENTO - It seems like a long time ago, and it was. Forty years ago today, my first story as a Times staff writer ran in the paper. It was about Ronald Reagan entering his final year as governor. Although he was a lame duck, I wrote, his political health had "remained relatively stable. " The piece ran on Page 1. I was in heaven. Not only was I working for the classy, well-paying L.A. Times, but my first offering was played out front. Unbeknown to most people outside this business, nothing is more important to a news reporter - short of accuracy - than landing on Page 1. That's really the sole agenda.
