This week, I took Monday off to catch the eclipse at one of Chicago’s parks, picked up an assignment for a site I’ve been eager to contribute to, and started populating the clips section of this site. Some of my old feature articles and op-eds are a trip. Here’s one worth revisiting: the time I got to review the VW Polo BlueMotion. I didn’t find out until later that VW wasn’t too happy with this piece (though they did grant permission for it). Let’s just say I’ve learned a lot since then.
