EMAIL FROM AN OLD BLOG CORRESPONDENT

Dear blog,

If this still goes to Judi, hi! (Also: hi Dave!) we corresponded many years back starting when I was a poster on the old message board and later when I somehow designed of bumper stickers for Dave’s presidential campaigns.

Now I’m based in Japan, where I manage the copy desk at The Japan Times and occasionally write for the paper. My most recent contribution, for the bilingual section, references “Dave Barry Does Japan” - specifically the part about goats.

I’m not sure it fits the blog’s core mission, but I wanted to share it in case you found it worthy of a shout-out.

More broadly, I wanted to say thanks to Dave, as reading his columns growing up was among the things that inspired me to pursue a career in newspapering, even if they don’t allow me (yet) to write a silly column.

As they say in Japan, よろしくお願いします。

Dan Traylor
