Joniisms to last a lifetime

Joniisms to last a lifetime

It has been just about three months since my friend Judge Joni Tidwell Haldeman left this place for a much better one. Her passing left a whole in the world that simply can’t be filled. This week I decided to recall our conversations and went back through some of the 12 years of messages I shared with her. I was quickly reminded of the deep wisdom that she possessed, and the often blunt and unabbreviated opinions that she held that helped guide me as a journalist and human being. Some were hilarious, some dead serious, but all memorable. What follows is a very small sampling, and I will share more another time.
