“Ron’s voice and perspective pieces sit nicely between The Onion and
The New Yorker, but he takes the tide of what’s being felt nationally,
and has no problem weaving it for the local reader.” â€” Alex Grattan
Why is it that what’s happening in this country is just like when
people go into the supermarket and grab a shopping cart. The cart
pulls to the left or the right, and for some reason, when the cart
pulls to the right, people will put up with that. But if the cart
pulls to the left, they’ll yell out “Damn It! I gotta get another
cart!” â€” Ron Knight
