We are writers Robert Smith, Steve Ricci, John Griffin and Jon Pine, four refugees from The Daily Mail, a tiny daily newspaper in upstate New York. We recently found each other thanks to a newfangled communication medium called FaceBook.
And like long lost siblings from a dysfunctional family, we realized that our time together at The Daily Mail infected us with certain formative skills, ideas and attitudes that, for good or for bad, are still with us some 25 years later. So we decided to write together again, here, in this blog.
The pay still sucks, but the companionship still feels special, so what the hell?
