Nevada Appeal Columns


I contributed to the Fresh Ideas column on the Opinion page in the Nevada Appeal from 1999-2015. A former editor called it a space for tree-hugging-granola-eating-vegetarian-feminists. It was meant to balance the more conservative voices in the paper. The Appeal is small, but it is the paper of record for Nevada’s capital, Carson City. My one hundred or so columns were sometimes personal and sometimes political. I’ve posted an assortment here. While the Appeal has taken the links down, there are a few hard copies of them out there, taped to refrigerators and lining bird-cages.
