Greatest Hits

Having been at this journalism bullshit for 13 or so years now, I've probably written something in the neighborhood of five million words, some of them better than others. Since most of it is scattered across numerous existant and non-existent websites and publications, here's a roundup of some of my finer efforts (I've left out most of the heavy hackwork. You want to see that, Google away) . Unfortunately, some of my best stuff is no longer available, but here's some of what is, in something approximating chronological order...
