Neil O. Nelson

Two years on the job and I’m still relatively unknown. However, I am no longer the new guy at the Harvey Herald-Press, there is that.

Now, I’m the old guy at the paper.

Honestly, I didn’t think my anonymity would leach into the third year, but it apparently has.

But that’s alright. It means I’m not a leech. I’m not over-bearing, obnoxious, offensive or cantankerous. Not loud, weird looking, strange or unpleasant.

Just another face in with the crowd, in other words.

When I leave a meeting or business, the resulting commentary goes something like this: “Who’s that?” “Do we know him?” “What’s his story?” “Oh, that’s the guy, huh?”
