Ash Wednesday Wild Card — 3/1/06

First, I’ll pass along a personal milestone before turning over the Wild Card and the afternoon to you. Today marks the 13th anniversary of my first day on The Spokesman-Review Editorial Board. I replaced Marnie Lombard way back when and became part of a small troika of editorial writers that also consisted of Editor Doug Floyd and John Webster. As rumor has it, I believe, I was then Editor Chris Peck’s third choice. Two others turned him down before the idea hit him that it might be good to have someone from Idaho providing a Gem State perspective. It’s all been downhill for the Editorial Page from there. Actually, it was a career reviver because I was tired of covering local government. Two years ago, starting the blog was an energizer. See me in another seven or eight years to see what I’ve come up with to pep me up again. Enjoy your Wild Card …
