County Courier editor Ethan Dezotelle is trying to quit smoking, and he's posting frequent updates about that process on the County Courier's website. If you go to the main page, and click on the "Kickin' Butts" item in the menu, you'll see his online journal. It's not exactly a blog, but it's as close as the County Courier has come yet.
I met Ethan last year at a Johnson State College panel, and wish him the best of luck. I quit smoking years ago, too, because I started dating a very wise woman who said she wouldn't go out with me if I smoked. Reader, I married her.
