"I thoroughly enjoyed your commencement speech (Hammer, “Advice for the Class of 2007,” May 9-16). The best advice you ever received hit home as I only recently figured out how to write about stocks for a living and get paid by Motley Fool to sit at home on my butt and do so all day every day. Doing so in a humorful way and away from corporate hell also helps, though unfortunately I don’t believe I’ll ever be able to match the creative freedom NUVO grants its writers ....
Anyway, I reside in Carmel and get a kick out of your weekly column; hopefully we’ll run into each other at some point going forward; would appreciate the opportunity to gain your experienced insight on writing as my background is more financial-based than journalistic.
And yes, South Park is my favorite show, though Curb Your Enthusiasm runs a close second.
