I was a late bloomer as a journalist. A very late bloomer.

After an accomplished athletic career as a player and coach in both high school and university, I went back to school in 1988 to study print and broadcast journalism. I was 32 years old.

Part of the script required that the announcer state, “These cars are Certified Pre-owned Vehicles.” So I asked myself, what does Certified Pre-owned really mean anyway? You hear it all the time in dealer commercials or see it in print but have no earthly idea what it means.
