Valentines for journalists

Do you love a journalist? Assuming lots of us are a little too jaded for the traditional “love you always”-type valentines, here are some you might like to print out and use. They include such sure-to-win-her-heart sentiments as “You make me miss darkrooms,” “My love is on the record,” “Don’t bury the lede…will you be my Valentine?” and my personal favorites: “My heart kerns for you” and “Not even a PAYWALL could keep me from you.” Enjoy!
