We're about to accompany the Bagram-based Provincial Reconstruction
Team up to the Salang tunnel that once monumental wreck destroyed in
one of the many different Afghan wars, whose rebuilding is said to
symbolize a new Afghanistan. Before we leave, let me tell you a little
about the team I travel with, veterans all of my various adventures.
There's my younger, taller, better looking brother Craig, the senior producer/reporter who's worked with me in the news business since he was 17. Except for the thirteen years he was on his own as a reporter for Bill O'Reilly's alma mater 'Inside Edition' Craig's been at my side through thick and thin for virtually his entire adult life. A terrific journalist with balls of steel, incredibly (to me), Craig's 53 now. He's married to the much younger Cordelia Bowe Rivera, a beautiful woman who is also a talented tv producer and the mother of their two kids, Austin 13, who's already taller than me and Olivia, 9 who's cute as can be.
