  1. I’ve been looking for time and place to compliment Gilliam Turner as a Fox reporter I’ve come to think is one of the best if not the top. She has a reserved personality but can “take over” when the time is right. Gillian, I hope you receive this note from a 93 yr old Lancaster area, Pennsylvania guy. At my age I can express admiration w/out a “hidden agenda.” As I type you are reviewing the past president’s speech.
    Gillain, I have been with my late wife to S. Africa in the interest of planning “Friendship Force” exchanges, which in fact did take place. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief time in S. Africa(it was before apartheid lifted).
    We visited friends in Durban (hot there), of course Pretoria first….there for Int’l conf of Rotary Club of which I was a delegate from Lancaster, PA In perhaps 1980. In the extreme south of S.A. (why can’t I think of the name?) we were entertained by friends who had a business to take care of out of the area, so Anne and I enjoyed the keys to their house, swimming pool etc. We made many friends, black, colored and white. OK, don’t wish to bore you but wanted express my “take” on where you’re from.

  2. Gillian Turner’s mother is Rachel Isadora, an author and illustrator of children”s books and a former dancer with the Boston ballet.

  3. I am sorry, but this reporter is unwatchable.
    She always sounds like she has cotton in her mouth. Her intelligence is
    questionable since many of her comments are simplistic and she often looks annoyed or mad
    when conversing with other female reported on Fox.
