We could always make Steve a columnistJuly 8, 2019 Tim WorstallNewspaper Watch10 CommentsHere or at Cont Tel…..a “Steve of the Day” column…. previousTimes Subs – Report for your beating!nextNot 100% confirmed as yet 10 thoughts on “We could always make Steve a columnist” PJF July 8, 2019 at 1:19 pm Just cos he’s priceless doesn’t mean you can afford him. Bloke in Germany July 8, 2019 at 2:40 pm Well, I don’t mean this as pejoratively as it sounds, but ConTel is basically a one-man content farm. What’s in it for him, except for glory? BlokeInTejas July 8, 2019 at 3:02 pm Well, you could **ask** him to be a columnist… SadButMadLad July 8, 2019 at 3:11 pm Weren’t there calls for steve to get a permanent position on the blog shortly after he started commenting? Van_Patten July 8, 2019 at 3:27 pm I’ll be interested in who gets the Democrat nomination for 2020 and Steve’s take on it – his comparison of Trump as Al Czervik from ‘Caddyshack’ (The character played by the late Rodney Dangerfield) and Hilary as Annie Wilkes from ‘Misery'(The character played by Kathy Bates) was so on the money I still use it and a ‘greatest hits’ of comments would probably approach the length of a Tolstoy novel. I do think he values his Free Agency so it would have to be a ‘guest slot’ but of course you can never have too much of someone who is a sheer genius… john 77 July 8, 2019 at 3:50 pm Van Patten +1 You couldn’t make it a “Steve of the Day” because he has to earn a living so not fully available 24-8 Sam Jones July 8, 2019 at 7:41 pm Excellent idea Tim. Steve July 8, 2019 at 9:19 pm Tim, I’m honoured, but I’m just some bloke! Not really a name-in-lights sort of chap. Folks – saying “you’re too kind” is a cliche, but you are too kind. I’ve enjoyed reading your thoughts, comments and bon mots for years and hope for many more. Thank you for reading my little musings, and especially thanks to Tim for hosting this excellent blog. dearieme July 8, 2019 at 9:54 pm See if you can tempt Steve to comment on the Nguardia article “How secondhand drinking ruins lives”. Personally I guess that secondhand teetotalism has done some harm too. Edward Lud July 8, 2019 at 10:57 pm Steve, I’m all in favour of your modesty. But bloody hell, when you get going it’s Dickensian with some PJ O’Rourke thrown in. It may be that you need something to riff off. That’s my sense of it, anyway. If so, find a riff. Yours is a turbocharged talent. More light, less bushel. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
