When my first child entered elementary school, knowing I was a journalist, she began asking me: "What stories did you work on today, Dad?"  At the time the Iraq war was in full swing.  I was in charge of CNN's Weapons of Mass Destruction beat.  I had very little to share with her.  I wanted to figure out a way to combine my role as father and journalist -- to create a space where parents can find stories they want to share with their children or with each other.  I call that space NewsDad.
