    Do you need me to explain "sources", when used in a journalistic manner?

    Oh cool! I worked for The Daily Triplicate in Crescent City, California from 2000 to 2004. Yeah, small-time backwater paper but I got to interview some interesting people. The most interesting was Chuck Yeager. He used to go fishing a lot at a nearby river.
