David Knopf: Bonds of friendship and community endure after death

I’m in my 30th year of journalism, which, roughly speaking, is way too long. But I have produced more than 8,000 stories, 7,253 of which had to include the subject’s age or the year they graduated high school, sometimes both. A tenet of community newspapers is to keep things local, and nothing’s more local than knowing what year someone you’re writing about graduated from a school the reader also probably attended.
