Greetings to all of you! To my frequent readers over the past year and a half, I am most thankful. I have decided to move forward with my website, and my ambitions, and launch an online newspaper. I have chosen to name the paper The Tern. The name comes from a small sailboat, The Arctic Tern, which my parents co-owned in the ’90s. The boat was docked at Monroe Harbor in Chicago.
The Tern will be a politically centre-left paper that ultimately will have a global focus. However, for now for the sake of my own sanity, this enterprise will focus primarily on the United States with future desks to open in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and France. At present I have come to an agreement with the following writers, who will write the various sections of The Tern:
Politics: Frank Kane, This Week in Washington, Seán Kane: UN Observer
Sport: Seán Kane: Formula 1, Mac Chapman: Soccer
Lifestyle: Maggie Weir
Film: Cullan May
The Tern will simultaneously published in French as La Sterne. All of the English language articles will be translated into French. This paper will at first not be a daily, nor a weekly, nor a monthly. Rather, individual articles will come out on their own respective days of the week.
If you have any interest in writing for The Tern, please email me at email@example.com
Again, a thousand thanks to all of you for your readership!
