Host Scott Simon talks with Rudy Taylor, publisher of the Flint Hills Express in Kansas, about Rose Leo. Before her death recently at age 108, Leo was thought to be the nation's oldest working journalist. Leo wrote a column called "Rose's Last Scrap" from the time she was 83 until she was 104. The Flint Hills Express ran her final, farewell column this past week.
