Joseph Lawler: Editor on the Move!

By on 12.18.11 | 10:37AM

Along with Jim Antle, Quin Hillyer and Aaron Goldstein, I want to wish our departing friend and colleague, Joseph Lawler, all the best in his new editorial endeavor at RealClear Politics. Joe may be young, but he's also a sharp-eyed editor.

I've been published well over a thousand times in dozens of publications; and one thing I've learned is the importance of a good editor and a second set of eyes. No matter how good a writer you are (or think that you are!), it's always helpful to have someone else review your work.

Especially when you keep very busy, as I do, it's easy sometimes to mistake your half-baked ideas with publishable prose. Joe has been a very patient, and typically very helpful, editor. He's got a bright future ahead of him. I wish him the best.
