About John Kanelis

John Kanelis has been a career journalist who worked in print journalism for 36 years until the end of August 2012. His blog covers the entire range of issues, most of them serious, some of them not so serious.

He is an avid follower of current events and has no shortage of opinions about them to share with those who care to read them. You need not agree. John’s emphasis is on politics and public policy at the local, state and national levels.

But John’s been writing as well about the joy of impending retirement. Perhaps you’ll relate to it.

Don’t be afraid to comment, telling John when he’s spot on or when he’s, well, off the mark. Don’t worry, no offense will be taken — but all kudos will be welcomed.

John married the girl of his dreams, Kathy, in 1971. They produced two nearly perfect sons — Peter and Nathan — and are the proud grandparents of two fine young men, Dylan and Logan, and of little Emma Nicole.

  1. Well, I just tried to start a blog and I thought I had a great idea for a name-but you thought of it before I did. 🙂 Oh well, if you’ve been at it 36 years, I don’t feel as bad. All I have is an associate degree in broadcast journalism. I’ll think of something—I’ve enjoyed your posts so far.

  2. John, my name is Judy Hathcock. My husband Reagan and I have long been admirers of you and your columns for decades. After Reagan’s mom died in 2012, we moved to the DFW area (Grand Prairie/Mansfield). I have noticed that you are friends on Facebook with David Horsley and others with whom we usually agree. I still love to read your cogent comments. If I ask you to be my friend on Facebook, you will now understand why. I hope you will accept my Facebook request.

  3. I’ve followed your twitter feed for a while now and your observations have earned a place in my bagel/tea morning ritual, always enjoyed. Remember middlenight Enterprise parties?

    1. Thank you for following my spewage on Twitter. You are more than welcome to share it with the wider world. Enterprise parties? Damn right I remember them! We all were much younger then. Thanks again. Keep reading.
