22 years….

by Rod Smith

This week this column has been on newsstands every weekday for 22 years in one of South Africa’s morning newspapers, The Mercury. The Mercury is sold in KwaZulu-Natal and is one of the oldest newspapers in the country. 

It has been my privilege to build a faithful readership over the years. 

I’m proud to know I write for the newspaper that was my first “real reading” as a child. 

As a child I recall being fascinated that “The Idler” (backpage humorist) was able to write EVERY DAY.

Little did I know it would be my joy to be published daily for over two decades (so far).
