Over the course of the last 21 years as a weekly columnist, I’ve written an estimated 1,200 articles on a wide variety of topics. While I’m almost certain a writer is not supposed to have favorites amongst his written pieces, I must admit that I do.

My Father’s Day tribute originally published on June 15, 2008, is one I’m particularly fond of primarily because it is not only personal but is also one I believe anyone who calls himself “dad” can easily relate. I hope all you Dads agree.
