I'm delighted to end the radio silence with a special announcement: In January, I will join the Commentary section of the Rocky Mountain News in Denver as an editorial writer. (The Opinion section's link has just joined my blogroll.) The gap between real jobs has been nerve-wracking, but the wait was justified. I'm eager to move to higher ground and get started. Thanks to all the friends and well-wishers who have buoyed my spirits in recent weeks.
From all accounts, Denver is one of America's most liveable large cities, and the News is a gutsy competitor in a terrifc newspaper market. Don't know when I'll write anything with a byline, but that's OK. I'm just ready to get back to work.
