John Carenen is a colleague of mine here in Mondoville — his office is across the hall from mine. He’s funny, talented, passionate about his students and good writing, and another man of the Right despite working in a college English department (Of course, that may be why he and I are down at the end of the hallway.). His work has been published everywhere from Reader’s Digest and McCall’s to the Clinton (S.C.) Chronicle. He’s got a terrific wife, great kids, and a novel coming out later this year. But he didn’t have a blog.
He’s now the chief cook and bottlewasher at Curly, Larry, and Me. You should make it a regular stop on your blogreading journey. He’s good.
Meanwhile, the Major (Ret.), now in mufti, has reverted to his earlier identity as Mad Dog, Esq., under which name he will blog sporadically. I hope you’ll join me in dropping in and bickering with him, on the grounds that the more time he spends with his blog, the less time he spends working as a faceless bureaucrat, bringing about the demise of all that right-thinking people hold dear.
Finally, Steven Hart is a writer with a fondness for noir. He, too, has a blog, and he warrants your interest as well.
We now return to our regularly scheduled gradeapalooza.
