Readers with an insatiable appetite for my opinion pieces are encouraged to hydrate and get some rest. If the impulse persists, I would follow Oscar Wilde’s advice: “The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.”
For those who wish to peruse even more of my op-eds, the links below connect to archives of my articles at a variety of publications and organizations. These include my public-affairs commentary dating back to the early 21st Century and even into the late 1990s. Also available: occasional arts- and culture-related articles ranging from music, film, theater, and restaurants reviews to travelogues and even disaster-related pieces from the Katrina Zone.
I am proud of my huge body of work — literally, thousands of articles chronicling, responding to, and occasionally shaping local, national, and international events starting with my articles for the Town Crier, which I edited at Paul Revere Junior High School in Los Angeles, back in 1978-79. Most of those very early pieces are on paper, as the Internet had yet to be invented by Al Gore. I have copies of virtually every word I have had published, both for student news outlets and for major city papers, starting with my opinion pieces that a wonderful man named William Cheshire began running at The Washington Times Circa 1985.
Someday, I hope to have these articles scanned and made available, in case anyone wants to know what I thought about, say, the SALT II Treaty. Until then, nearly all of what I have written that is available online is just a click away, via these links:
