The Register’s Excellent Choice

So I was in an intense column idea-generating session yesterday afternoon on Gardner Golf Course when my BlackBerry buzzed with news that Kathie Obradovich will be The Register’s new political columnist.  She replaces some guy named David Yepsen, who took a job at Southern Illinois U.

The Register made an excellent choice.

Kathie was Des Moines bureau chief for Lee Enterprises newspapers when I took a job there in 1998. We had a  great time working together and I count her as a friend and mentor. She’s a terrific, thoughtful writer with a great sense of humor, and I’m looking forward to her columns.
