My cup o’ Joe

Back when I was an idiot, know-it-all writer at The Tennessean, we had a columnist named Joe Rogers who would answer any questions about any topic at any time. I actually thought it was an excellent idea, and Joe did it really well. Of course, nobody sticks at one newspaper for more than, oh, 10 years, so Joe has long since left Nashville.

But his mug remains in my cupboard.
