I started a freelance contract with NUVO here in Indianapolis, to write a weekly column. It is called "Hair of the God," and initially was to follow the following format:
Go to comedy show Saturday night, attend worship service Sunday morning. Review and contrast.
My editor found the "church review" portion of my submission much more viable than the comedy review, so we ran with that.
After its very first printing, the column was pulled from rotation and may now only be found online. That's right -- Phil van Hest has been officially censored! Isn't that exciting? Imagine little me joining the ranks of Aristophanes, J.D. Salinger and Dr. Seuss!
Not really of course, since, as I mentioned its still online, just not in print. Still, shouldn't I take this as a sign that I'm definitely on to something here?
Here's a link to the article that started it all.
