Peter Bronson, Editorial Page Editor


"Having a column is like having a hunting license for sacred cows. It a job that pays me for what everyone else gives away without even being asked: opinions.

"I write about whatever interests me. Some columns say things I can't say while writing or editing those buttoned-down, unsigned editorials that speak for The Enquirer; others are purely for the fun of writing.

"I try not to take it too seriously, and use humor to make a point wherever possible.

"I've had enough awards to wallpaper a closet, but my favorite is still the one granted by ordinary readers who say, 'I disagree, but I enjoyed your column anyway.'

"Or, 'I put it on the refrigerator.' "
