We had a great day of educational kayaking. We learned a lot, and we need to practice more. The Metroparks will start offering rentals soon at a few places.

We waited out a heavy thundershower that occurred between 1:52 and 2:30 p.m.

Our kayaking occurred at Blue Creek.

What is the value of Twitter to a journalist? Is it worth all the vitriol coming at you? — Phyllis Greenbaum, Columbia, Md.

This is a great question, for which I don’t have a great answer. I was one of the biggest Twitter scolds in the 2012 campaign, which is the first one where it was in wide use.

I think it makes everything look flat and small and the same. It’s hard to differentiate a significant story from a quote, and the context is all gone.

We now have a president who uses it a primary means of communication, so journalists who cover him don’t really have the luxury of staying off it, and I have tried.

But we could all be better on Twitter, especially me. I have gotten into needless fights that have made me come off poorly, or made people question my intent, and I deeply regret those moments.
