Permit me to share with you that I find myself lately looking forward to receiving the Port News to read the column of Howard Blankman. I do not always share Howard’s lens, but I always appreciate his writing craft.
I met Howard Blankman perhaps 20 years ago through his wife, Donna, who, like me, is part of the community of St. Stephen’s Church. I enjoyed Howard’s energy, positivism, and wit back then and do so again now through his column in your paper.
It’s not edgy or too clever. Rather, Howard’s column lifts people up, celebrating them and inspiring others. That is important work and Howard does it with a refreshing straightforward presentation and unabashed enthusiasm. Love it!
