Having spent nearly three decades reporting world news from more than 20 countries, I entered the world of blogging in December 2010 to follow a trend, hoping to get custom as a semi-retired copywriter. I am a former correspondent for Reuters, the Associated Press (AP) and United Press International (UPI).
About three years on, and with 9,000 unique hits, I decided to retire to focus on my hobby, that of a musician. I am a lead guitarist in a rock blues band.
But I do remain your grumpy old editor who sometimes surfs the Internet in search of poorly written copy on business as well as news websites. I just won’t update my blog on a regular basis.
