About this blog
I’m Dan Radmacher. I’ve been writing editorials and columns for more than 20 years. After working at The Roanoke Times for nearly six years and the Charleston (W.Va.) Gazette for 10 years before that, I made the jump in to nonprofit work as communications director for the Appalachian Mountain Advocates. Now I work for myself, as a writer and editor at WritingLeft. This is my personal blog. I write about state and national political issues, the environment, public discourse and whatever else crosses my mind – including the occasional book, movie or music review.
I’m a firm believer in civil discourse, so be polite and reasonable in your comments. Disagreement is welcome; personal insults are not.
