Joseph Perkins quits: The San Diego Union-Tribune's conservative columnist, Joseph Perkins, last day is today. His final column can be found here. I'm going to miss Joseph, not least of all because he once bought me lunch at Hooters.
The thing that sticks in my memory most about Joseph was a touch football game a couple of years back between the Union-Tribune's "word" people and "design" people. I was on the design team and I didn't know Joseph except by reputation. On one play Joseph managed to get a step on the defender downfield and ended up making an incredible, acrobatic catch for a 30-some yard gain.
I wish him all the best.
And no, they haven't offered me Joseph's old job.
