Kevin Featherly and I have a long history … we met when he wanted to write for the Beacon, and I was co-publishing it. A few years later, when I left the Carlsbad Journal, I recommended him for my vacant position. He got. A year later, when a position opened up at the Daily Californian, I recommended him and he got the job. At that point, he started calling me The Godfather. He’s a great guy. One of the kindest people I’ve met in journalism. And smart, too. A little left of center, but that’s ok. I remember during the first Gulf War we got in a couple of arguments. That was the first time I ever took a pro-war stance, btw. At any rate, Kev is now a blogger.
