Forgive Him His Spelling--This Guy Can Write
With this entry, I'm taking my annual break from the blog, which means you get to spend some time with The Post's Steve Hendrix, who is kind enough to play the role of Raw Fisher for a couple of weeks.
Steve is a Metro reporter with a great eye for the strange, the beautiful and the outrageous. He's an explorer, a veteran of our Travel section who lives some of each year deep in the wilds of western Guatemala. And as you may discover, he can't spell. His spelling is so, um, special that he got a terrific Magazine cover story out of his malady--you can read it here.
During his stint in the Travel section, Steve was the mastermind behind the Escapes page, which means he knows more about great places to go on the weekend than anyone else in the D.C. area.
Whether writing about waltzing in Vienna or exploring the jungles of Peru, Hendrix manages to take you right to the heart of a place. He's on the Post's Maryland staff now--he lives in Montgomery County--and he's brought that same world-traveler approach to things local. Here he is on the culture of the Preakness, a lovely portrait of life on the backstretch. And here he is just last week on the strange case of the supermarket owners in Chevy Chase who feel compelled to send their shopping carts through the wash after each use.
Be kind to him, please.
I'm back on the blog in a couple of weeks.
