“Special assignment”


My assignment isn’t quite as special as the firefighter’s, and definitely not as dangerous. To explain this note in today’s print edition, my column for Wednesday was very different, and on a sensitive but newsworthy subject, one potentially of interest to our sister papers around LA. So we decided to hold it to run Sunday, where it will have more impact anyway, and make sure we’re presenting it right.

That’s a good call, even if it meant forgoing a column for Wednesday.

Now, I’ve got to get to work on Friday’s column, as well as tomorrow’s Restaurant of the Week blog post.

    Sounds like kind of a big deal for our favorite columnist/blogger/author. Hopefully, someone got to run into the plant and yell, “Stop the presses!”

      Alas, no. (Also, there are no presses here to stop.)

    I’m glad to know you are serious about your writing.

    And here I thought that it was probably a cloak & dagger situation with the intrepid reporter ferreting out crime and corruption in the fetid underbelly of the Inland Valley.

      And with this heat, the Inland Valley’s underbelly is more fetid than ever.
