Just read a bunch of Beth Thames’ columns in the “Living” section of the Sunday Huntsville Times. I am now a fan. Why? Because Thames packs a lot of insight, complexity, and humor into that small space. See her piece on the Katrina emigrant family, for instance. Or check out the one proposing New Year’s resolutions for the state of Alabama.
We’ve got great writers in this little pocket of the world, and I want to read more of them.
