You’ll find a disproportionate number of newspaper columns here compared to any other category of my published writing, at least early on into this website’s history. That could change later. But I doubt it will.
Because columns were always my favorite thing to write back in my features-dude days, the equivalent of newspaper-sanctioned blogs, for print. In the years since leaving newspapers behind, I’ve thought a lot about why I’m so taken with the format. And also about the fact I’ve quite clearly never really left newspapers behind.
The answer is simple, and unfortunate: I’m a windbag. That can type.
