Bring back the draft

When the first of next year rolls around, I will have had the honor of appearing in these pages of my local newspaper for 10 full years.

But a little over two years ago I was given the opportunity to become the grizzled old Sunday opinion guy, and as I feel it a privilege to visit you with my thoughts each week, I've tried to behave responsibly.
