Gail Collins Column Returns

May 5, 2007

The New York Times announcement of the new columnist schedule says that Gail Collins will be writing a Thursday/Saturday column beginning in August. This is excellent news because Collins was an outstanding columnist back when she actually wrote one before becoming in charge of the editorial page in 2001. Apparently she’s now on book leave, and her return will give the Times another female columnist beyond the maddeningly fluffy Maureen Dowd.
