Fool’s Gold, the column, cuts right to the core of such universal matters as the environment, sports, technology, politics, and bears. If you have never cut to the core of a bear, then believe me when I say, neither have I. But when I do, I will spin it into Fool’s Gold.

Fool’s Gold splices the antics of Thomas L. Friedman with the gravitas of Stephen Colbert. The editor of the New Mexico Mercury, V.B. Price, says the column has “a perfect tone, full of verbal and narrative surprises.” Dave Barry has called me—in writing!—“my personal idol” and a “Fellow Humor Professional.”
Fool’s Gold won a first place award in 2017 from the Society of Professional Journalists’ Top of the Rockies Excellence in Journalism Awards for personal/humor columns.
