I’m closing in on my seventh anniversary as editor of the Washington Examiner, which until last June was a daily newspaper and website that concentrated mainly on local news. Now we’re a 24/7 website and weekly magazine focusing on national politics and policy. One thing has stayed the same: the groaning work load. I see a good deal of Geoffrey Baker, who lives around the corner from me and who is president of the Metropolitan Club during its sesquicentennial. I also enjoy staying in touch with 32 classmates on the closed group ‘Deerfield ’67’ on Facebook. Every time I see a picture of Ned Scudder I am reminded he lives a life far sweeter than mine.
