Jack Driscoll was the prototype: good journalist, good person

By Kevin Cullen

When I got out of school, the chief editors at the first two newspapers I worked at were kind of nuts. They fit the stereotype of the hard-charging, maniacal editors familiar from movies and TV.

They yelled, they screamed, they threw things. Their style of leadership engendered fear more than loyalty, and their focus was relentlessly short-term: get the story at all costs.

Jack Driscoll was nothing like that.
