My dad, the incomparable Jim Kemp, has finally created a blog of his own. I’m jumping the gun by announcing Press Past, where I’m sure Dad’s cogent political analysis and half-century (yes) of Old School journalistic experience will inform, enlighten, and entertain you.
If you know me, you know that I’m my dad’s number-one fan. However, you must understand that his fans are legion. He has the respect and affection of countless people in the business and I’m sure they’ll be delighted to see him issuing his missives from retirement-land after a long silence.
My dad has always been a friend to women, minorities, students, and single parents in the business, long before it was fashionable or legally required, because it was the right thing to do. He is an endless source of hilarious tales–all true–that he tells like no one else can. He’s a good guy and a great dad/husband/grandpa. Check out his blog!
