My first column – titled with great originality, “Show Me Eats” – ran in the Columbia Daily Tribune. My parents immediately ran out and bought every copy of the paper so you may have needed to read it online. Strangely enough, the column prompted little to no increased traffic to this site. Maybe boring navel-gazing and chestnut soup recipes aren’t edgy enough to elicit any reaction. Fine. Next week it’s downtown Columbia parking and actually eating the free breakfast at hotels.
