People here have been hard on the Beacon for a long time, sometimes fairly and sometimes not-so-fairly, but I think I can speak for a lot of ZN posters when I say that you've done an incredible job since you took over the beat. Zips coverage has never been better.
P.S. On a side note, it hasn't gone unnoticed, by me anyway, what a wild journey your career at the Beacon has been. Movie critic, Cavs, and now the Zips. The professionalism with which you've handled all that change is more than commendable. Not many journalists could have done what you have, and far fewer still could have handled it anywhere near as well. Most readers have no clue how different all of your role's have been, but my hat's off to you. You are a pro's pro.
P.P.S. I remember your son doing some reviewing from a kid's perspective when you were the movie critic. Is he still writing?
