Regular blog readers may remember my rumination on Dave Chappelle and Bob Hope. Asked to write about Chappelle before his appearance in Cleveland on Sunday, I went back to some of those notes and expanded on them for the print Beacon Journal. (Chappelle was not available for an interview.) You can find the result here.
Writing the story was more difficult than I at first expected, since I had the general idea already. But that's one of the things I've learned in the back-and-forth of blogging and regular newspaper writing; one doesn't always transfer directly into the other. But the blog is affecting the print stuff; the casual and conversational tone online has made my writing for print a bit more relaxed.
