The loneliness of the long-distance columnist

Jason Pitz-Waters looks at some of the press coverage that newWitch magazine is receiving and wonders why no one mentions his music column.

Ain't it the truth. You shoot these columns off into the dark and wonder if anyone ever reads them.

Some years back, I wrote a weekly fishing-hunting-outdoor recreation column for a small Colorado daily newspaper. Then I quit that job in order to teach part-time at a community college and work on a book. About a year later, someone stopped me at the supermarket and asked me to mention his organization's upcoming event in my column. It would have been appropriate for the column, too, except I haven't written one for the last year, you illiterate idiot. Like it's obvious that you are one of my faithful readers . . . not..

OK, I didn't say that, but I felt like saying it.

Ha! No doubt I'll have a similar experience a couple years after I stop writing for newWitch.
