A man whose body was found dangling outside a downtown Sacramento office tower may have been a tagger, authorities said. At some point Monday morning, it appears the man tied a rope around himself, authorities said. However, he was tied in a seated position like a rappeller. The rope was tied off with a window washing anchor, and fire officials believe that that anchor could have held his weight. But they don't think he was a window washer. Around 7:45 a.m., a person in another building reported seeing the man hanging near 12th and K streets.

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.
