Detroit Free Press columnist needs help reinventing himself

Tom Walsh

Thirty-year newspaper veteran Tom Walsh says he realizes he can no longer be a traditional business columnist and needs readers to point him in a new direction.

Should I spout more opinion or less? Introduce you to more smart, eclectic characters? Or deliver more facts and links to help you draw your own conclusions? Should I write less often and more deeply? Or should I be there for you with something fresh every day?

He knows that some readers will suggest he retire — an idea his wife will veto. “[She] accepts that she signed up for better or worse, but not for lunch everyday.”
