I'm touched. (Yeah, yeah. Save yer snark.)

I had to share this note that came to my mailbox via postcard today.

Dear Mr. Stephens,
Before I die (I'll be 80 soon) and while you are still the columnist for the Travel section of The Dispatch, I want to tell you how much I have enjoyed your articles for the past several years. As I recall, you were once a reporter with a "liberal bent," so we didn't always see eye to eye. So I was really pleasantly surprised when you started writing for Travel and your photos aren't bad either.

The Hard Life of a Travel Writer -- Daytona Beach Edition

The Buckeye Traveler

I'll be commenting on the "adventures" of this guy who's a Midwestern newspaper travel writer.
This blog is not affiliated in any official way with that guy nor with the newspaper for which he writes. It is not produced on company time and is not endorsed by anyone respectable. It does not reflect the views of his publisher nor of Major League Baseball.
Got it?
Got it?
