I worked at Chicago area newspapers for 15 years as a reporter, columnist and editor, ultimately managing three newspapers. Then ran away to the mountains of Colorado a number of years ago to catch a breath of fresh air and sanity. Like many ex-news people it’s hard to shut my pie hole with so much going on around me. So, I dusted off my old Chicago area vanity license plate and decided it would make a good blog title (Newsy1).
My blog isn’t think-tank material of course and sometimes I rant and rave and/or see the humor in things that aren’t supposed to be funny but I enjoy myself and don’t take myself or anyone else too seriously. Even though I freelance and have written for AOL/Huffington Post , Gadling and other online sites, this blog started my internet writing venture and is still my favorite thing to do. I am the author of Widows Like Me, which is available at Amazon for a mere .99. (sorry about the shameless self-promotion). Thanks for stopping by.
