Jimmy Breslin Hitting Stride in NY Daily News

Newspaper legend Jimmy Breslin is back, after a period of retirement that apparently didn't take. The octogenarian dean of New York columnists, and quintessential city-o, is writing a column once a week for the NY Daily News.

We love JB, #1, but will say that he seemed a little rusty, for a while. But this week's column is barbed, funny, and relevant to ordinary people in a way that 95% of stuff in any newspaper is not.

Rather than excerpt here, we will simply encourage you to check him out in this week's NY Daily News online, if you like good writing.
