BEST REASONS TO READ THE STAR TRIBUNE Minneapolis 2006 -
Pat Reusse and Jim Souhan are always solid, Garrison Keillor is reliably writerly and persnickety, and the Business section delivers some of the most insightful writing and analysis around. More and more, though, we find ourselves turning to the thoughtful prose of outdoors writer Anderson and travel writer Welsch. Both have a way of painting a scene and drawing us in. Both respect us enough not to waste our time, and inevitably deliver a purposeful point in their prose. And the love both men have for their jobs—the writing and the subjects they cover—is evident every time out. Here's hoping the McClatchy empire respects their well-honed craft enough to allow them to continue exploring their beats at their own quiet pace. It's our gain.
