I love getting news like this:
Jonah,Just a quick heads-up that your syndicated column appeared in this morning’s Topeka Capital-Journal. Not sure what’s going on, but some weeks ago I emailed the publisher complaining that Cal Thomas, George Will, David Broder, Ellen Goodman, etc. were dull, dull, dull. I suggested he look to the internet for new blood. Anyway, we’ll see what happens next week. Kudos.
Me: I don’t necessarily agree with his views on those columnists. I am a big fan of Will’s and who among us hasn’t enjoyed the heart-pounding rush that comes from a really zingy David Broder column? But I really appreciate it when readers (successfully) nudge their local papers to carry my column — or any of our other syndicated columnists, of course.
