A long time ago, in a Richmond far, far away, I wrote a column for the Richmond Review for a few months. It was all good fun, and in hindsight, quite silly. Using a scanner with OCR, I have taken these from the completely analog newspaper, to the digital age.

I was also allowed to write whatever I liked to fill a few column inches in the Progress, a weekly competing with the mighty Maple Ridge Gazette. The publications dates are not available for these. I worked there in 1976, before moving on to the Fraser Valley News Herald , where I was a sports editor and photographer and sometime columnist for a year or so, before moving up to the sports editor position at the Review.

This is the result of giving a guy a newspaper sandbox to play in, and not paying attention to what he does in it.
