All I was thinking about was, Baseball season is coming up, and if I take this assignment, I’ll miss the whole thing—plus the dangers. I called back and said, “I don’t think I can do this.” All the top editors of the magazine e-mailed me and said, “We understand.”

“Now journalists are much more of a target.” —Ed Kashi
