Gladin enlivens the topic
It has come to my attention that Susan Gladin has been writing columns for the Chapel Hill Herald for 15 years. That is quite an accomplishment.
I have not read all or even most of them, but I have been a consistent reader for the most recent half of her 15-year tenure for the column. I took notice of Susan’s columns when I became associated with her at the Johnson Intern Program Inc., where she served as executive director and about which she wrote in a few of her columns.
She enlivens the topic of each of her columns with excellent writing that enlivens the subject. At those times that I disagree with her point of view, her gentle, humble and instructive style always makes me reexamine my own view of the matter (perhaps my own bias), and I come away better informed and with a broader appreciation of the point at hand.
My compliments to The Chapel Hill Herald for making Susan Gladin’s essays available to its readers.
