A (Slightly) Better Place I’ve been Quoted

Before we moved to Portland, Oregon, we lived in a place called Amarillo, Texas. It was in the middle of the Panhandle, which most people in the world know as the “box at the top of the funny-looking state.” I wrote a column for the local paper for awhile, but I was also interviewed for a story called “Blogging For a Living.”¬†I was one of many contributors¬†on a blog called Panhandle Truth Squad. Our blog mostly made fun of– sometimes rather cruelly– the local media. One of the things I said was, “Sometimes we call ourselves the self-appointed ombudsmen of the local media.”

I never liked the title of the piece. I was certainly not Blogging for a Living. I was teaching for a living.
