In my 10 years editing the Times Citizen, patterns have emerged: as the frequency of meetings increases, so does my crankiness; every summer, someone will pass through Hardin County on their bike ride across the country; and most people, if asked, will decline an invitation to share their opinions in print on this page. While most things have gotten easier with time, finding commentary for the opinions page is still a struggle.

We have our regular columnists, but a few times a month I have space to fill on this page, and no one to put there.
