Journalism

I've worked as a journalist for 24 years, including the last 19 years as my primary profession.  I'm in the process of tracking down some of my favorite stories that are available on-line and posting a selection of them here.  I'll continue to add stories as I have time, and I hope eventually to share an assortment of my work as a baseball writer, theater critic, investigative reporter, environmental writer, political reporter, Arts and Entertainment Editor, and Sports Editor.  I hope you enjoy this insight into my professional career, and I hope you find a story or two of interest to you.  Please pardon the "under construction" nature of this page while I focus my attention on my political campaign.
