He can write a good column - especially capturing the emotional part. I give you that much. But....

As I grew to dislike the person, I could not read his columns without needing to critique every little point that seemed unsubstantiated or just not true. It's called nitpicking and I became very good at it so why would I want to use up my time, effort, energy in going after a local columnist who I grew to dislike immensely so I ended my subscription.

If I were doing work for him and he allowed me to keep doing that work without informing me I was no longer a paid employee and it took me to find out why, I could never give him a penny again, no matter how much I enjoyed his work. He's not that good and even if you rationalized he is that good, on principle he would get nothing from me again.

I agree. He is a good columnist who has actually had some balls to go out on his own and do this. And startups in any field can be ruthless in dealing with employees. I work in IT and what happens at DK pales next to the stuff that happened to many good collegues in some of the companies I worked at.

THe only thing I cannot stand are those readers who go over the top in praising him and actually say crap like "tears are rolling down my face and falling on my keyboard as I read your column". I barely noticed the brick thing because I thought it was actually a typo when I saw the price on the site. I still do not understand who the hell buys DK T Shirts???

The Olympics columns are engaging. Definitely better than the coverage we are getting at the postgazette or trib.
