WAITING TO BE BORN
Last weekend NY1, the all-news cable station devoted to metropolitan New York, named Katina Paron their "New Yorker of the Week" for her efforts (all unpaid) to establish a new local kids' journalism organization to take the place of the recently disbanded Children's Express. Baslow's children's can be glimpsed in the course of the feature. Baslow himself has a brief speaking role (with a weird hand gesture thrown in). The focus, however, is on Katina, who richly deserves it. We grow more and more optimistic that, because of her tenacious and indefatigable efforts, the spirit of Children's Express will once again waft through this Metropolis.
