Andrea's column: A thankless job?
A note I wrote to myself last year read, "Do Not Forget National Columnists Day One More Time." Instead of a quiet period at the end of the sentence, there were a number of exclamation points.
Why pen that reminder to myself? First, because I spend a lot of time scratching my head, wondering what the heck to write about. And every year, when I remember there is such a day, it is long past. But mainly because I have so many favorite columnists.
