The Bristol Herald Courier prints my comments about the word “overeducated.”

The Bristol Herald Courier printed my latest letter to the editor this morning; you can find it at this link:

Your View: Be wary of politicians who shame the ‘overeducated’

Thanks once again to the editors of this excellent regional newspaper for allowing me to interact with my neighbors in Southwest Virginia.



The Roanoke Times publishes my letter about the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

I was so pleased this morning to see that The Roanoke Times published my letter to the editor about the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.  You can find it right here.

I’m honored that my thoughts about the occasion appear to have struck a chord with people.  This same letter was featured  first on Wednesday by New York’s Newsday (with a weekday circulation of 437,000), and then here in Virginia by The Bristol Herald Courier (with a circulation of 39,000).  As The Roanoke Times has a Sunday circulation of 85,000, this would mean that the letter was distributed to 561,000 readers.

Here’s a big word of thanks to the editors of The Roanoke Times for allowing me to communicate with with my neighbors through such a superb regional newspaper.
