A Born Communicator Learns to Live Without Vocal Cords

Doug Harlow isn't afraid to speak out. He was a beat poet in Boston. He protested the Vietnam War in Washington, D.C. After Franco died, he joined the Anarchists tearing up the cobblestones of Los Ramblas. There was a time he could say "I love you" in a dozen languages, and when his kids were little he made radio dramas and played all the parts. Today, he works as a newspaper reporter, turning out seven, sometimes eight, articles a week. Doug is a born communicator, but it's not because he has the loudest voice in the room. Emily Kwong has the story.
