Career history: I've been editorial page editor slightly more than a year. I spent several years each covering crime, government and transportation.
Changes in the shop: We are orchestrating chaos by switching from a Mac system to PC, while undergoing newsroom renovations.
Family news: With four daughters -- college junior, high school senior, second-grader, and toddler -- I'm not certain on any given day what all are up to.
Best thing about job: Finally being able to express an opinion and working with letter writers.
Worst thing about job: Listening to racist subscribers.
First impression of NCEW: There's an overwhelming volume of e-mail, but discussions (for the most part) are of interest.
