About

.For 26 years, I was the TV writer for Gannett News Service. That ended with the stark cutbacks on Dec. 3, 2008, but I continue to send daily columns and stories to a dozen papers (most of them Gannett) via the TV America syndicate.

After I send them to papers, I put them here. The daily columns are (quite logically) found under "TV column"; the other stories are here under "blogs."

If you have comments or questions -- or if you want to add me to your paper or Web page -- you can reach me at:
