James Duffy V
James Duffy V loves to sing a song of one’s self. He is studying journalism at Citrus College and aspires to a career in writing. He cultivates interests in politics, finance, religion, literature, music, art and gardening. More than any other flora, James would like to sprout the mythical bǐ huā 筆花—the flower the Chinese say springs from a good scribbler’s pen. He believes the first responsibility of a journalist is fiat justitia ruat cælum, do justice and let the heavens fall.
