When Diane W.

Fifteen years and more thanMoreWhen Diane W. Mufson became a citizen member of the Herald-Dispatch editorial board in Huntington, West Virginia, little did she know the role would result in a monthly, then weekly, opinion column for the newspaper. Fifteen years and more than four hundred columns later, Mufson releases a collection containing seventy-three of her favorites: Dispatches of a Columnist: Opinions on Politics, Kids, Common Sense and Sex.Bringing fresh insight as well as the right touch of humor and sentiment, Mufson has a talent for expressing the thoughts, emotions, and frustrations shared by many in America today. She divides the columns by topic into ten chapters, from Chapter One: The Real America, which includes writings on important events such as 9/11 and the war in Iraq, to Chapter Four: Family Lessons, where readers find her argument for Social Security in relation to her father, to Chapter Ten: The Road Ahead, which explores topics such as immigration reform and the Affordable Care Act.Those not familiar with Mufsons work, but who enjoy the opinion writing of Frank Bruni, Kathleen Parker, and Leonard Pitts Jr. will find in this collection a new voice on America to appreciate.
