Anyway, for a current head shot as I resume writing for The Daily News after the 20-year hiatus, I originally thought of using my new passport photo, which, under current regulations, forbids a smile. It’s me, and I like it, but is it appropriate for a broad spectrum of columns, including humor?
The OpEd editor offered a new shot, taken by photography editor Bryan Eaton. I got to choose from multiple digital images. I hope this one works, though it is now frozen in time.
If a picture is indeed worth a thousand words, this head shot far outweighs the word count of the column itself. I’d better get this right.
