Back in 1991, I answered an ad in the Marquette Tribune to be one of four rotating columnists in their paper. Back then, I was well onto my way of being a long-haired (relatively) radical. Of course, the fact that Marquette is a nice, solid Jesuit University certainly helped me in my pursuit. As a matter of fact, the four columnists were designed to represent four viewpoints: Conservative, Moderate to Conservative, Moderate to Liberal, and Liberal. I was the Moderate to Liberal, or the best they could do.
I have collected some of the columns I wrote for the Tribune. Some might
be a little context-sensitive; hence I have added some exposition in red text to help
set the scene. In addition, I have dropped a couple of drafts for unpublished columns onto
the Web site, too, so that you can either revel in my genius or wonder if I never wrote anything
decent in my life.
