I’ve managed to gain the nickname “Pa” here in the office. It likely has to do with my sage, fatherly advice and cutting insight on humanity, politics, the global economy, foreign affairs and professional football, although my creaky back and propensity to wear collared shirts under sweaters might also have something to do with it.

It may also come from being the father of The People’s Reporter. Regular readers of this blog have likely become accustomed to this occasional feature. Here’s how it works: I’m your personal reporter for the day.

Let me know what information, questions, secrets, rumors or suspicions you want tracked down or analyzed, and I’ll do my best in the next 24 hours to report what I find back to you. So let the requests fly. Just click in my name below to send me an e-mail.

I’m at your service.
