Inspired by Brian's posts on his TIME work, thought I would post some of mine for Justin Fox's column. This is a financial column, and as we all know solutions can sometimes be ellusive or appear as stock, or can just be done very badly. I know, I've have done my share of those. I try to avoid the blatant cliches or at least try to twist them. A few have been stinkers but looking back most seemed post worthy, and a few make me very happy. I am so grateful to be working for Time, as well as Newsweek, NYT and all the rest that have given me steady work. I sometimes take it for granted but over these past few weeks I have considered myself very fortunate and pray that the phone keeps ringing and the inbox is full.
