Two Opinion Columns I've Written
I've recently gotten a new job in the northern suburbs of Metro Atlanta, working for a chain of weekly newspapers. As part of my job responsibilities, I will be writing a column for my paper twice a month.
Here's the first column, written about how I interviewed Fulton County Commissioner Liz Hausmann and took the opportunity to examine a whole of Western fiction at a local library.
Here's the second column, which I posted online today and will be published in print this week. It's about Sunday alcohol sales in Georgia and why local communities should have the chance to vote on allowing them.
I'm pleased with this one, since it's gotten 26 Facebook recommendations in a few hours and has been tweeted five times (I've only tweeted it once, so that means four people like it enough to pass it along).
Especially spiffy is that I'm allowed to put my blog link at the end of each column. I don't think the first column attracted many readers here, but the second one has attracted eight already and it's only been a few hours.
