Seriously? As much as I honestly enjoy some of Anne Minicozzi's columns, this one is one big silly yawn-a-thon. Really Anne? Regurgitation? Good lord, dahhhhling the calla lillies are in bloom, surely you can think of something?
Main Line Suburban Life > Opinion
I appreciate all your feedback during the year

Now that I’ve written a column for our local weekly newspaper twice monthly for a decade, yes, 10 years, it’s time for the annual “year in review” column.
One of the things I really enjoy about writing this column for our community of readers is this opportunity to look back and see what the topics of the columns were. The composite usually is telling with respect to the contemporary concerns of Main Liners.
One change to this column that has occurred over this past year, July 2010 through June 2011, is that many more readers have been in touch with me in person and via e-mail, suggesting column topics and also offering feedback on topics addressed. Thank you for this. The grassroots orientation of this column has become stronger. It has changed the subject matter somewhat too, so that the column has become more community-oriented and less nationally and internationally politically oriented. It has become more localized. I have been following this trending, which has been occurring in the column, in a hands-off approach, to let it go to where readers would like it to go.
Now I also wonder if it is just me expecting too much, or if the local paper formerly known as The Suburban and Wayne Times and now known as Main Line Suburban Life has just quite simply lost it?
Where is it's direction? Where is the reporting? What is up with the reporting that does exist? I feel like I lost a faithful friend. Even the society pages are lacking (well not that one should be surprised considering they should be promoting younger society page contributors to the role of Society Editor and retiring you know who).
But I heard the most astonishing thing when I ran into a friend in Genuardis who said they heard a rumor Matt Baumann was leaving Radnor Township? As in the young guy who had the thankless job of being Zoned Out Officer and Director of Arrested Development? Where is he going and why? And why isn't the paper covering it, or did they bury it and I missed it?
Are there more things perking below the surface in Radnor we don't know about?
