Will work for chocolate

January 28, 2010 - Karin Elton
I’ll let you in on a dirty little secret — I accept bribes. One of the people I interview from time to time thinks she has to lavish me with candy after a story appears in the paper.

Who am I to let her know that I would do the story without the gift? What’s more, I’m happy to. She and her agency do a lot of good for people so I am glad to write the stories and help spread the word.

After an interview in her office, she has been known to open her desk drawer, take out some Hershey miniatures and fill my pocket.

Most recently she gave me a bag of Hershey’s Kisses with almonds after a story ran in the paper. Sometimes she gives me hugs also. The real kind, not Hershey’s Hugs, although I have gotten those too, come to think of it.
