MJ is no longer with the newspaper. She's doing other things.

Hi Phil-
I noticed that MJ Wilde won "Best Newspaper Writing in 2005" for columns. And I just noticed that she is no longer on the Trib website.
Is she still with the paper? Where is she? What were the circumstances of her departure? Is there someone who could fill me in?
Thanks,
Jon Knudsen
I don't know how many of you read MJ Wilde's column(s) in the Trib, but if you didn't get a chance before, it is almost too late. Here are the columns that won her the award:

Anti-gay county inherits the windstorm

Life's scary. Ask my bosom buddies.

Bathing suit (my! oh!) can't skim flaws

I'd like to teach sodas to live in perfect harmony

The baseball - it's something to spit about

The American Society of Newspaper Editors announced the awards over a year ago and all award winners were compiled in the book, Best Newspaper Writing 2005.

I'm such a dummy, I didn't know any of this happened. But what really bugs me is this: whatever happened to M.J. Wilde? I'll email somebody else to see if more information is available. Meanwhile, read a column or two. You won't regret it.

Say, I was just looking for her too. It seems like she fell off the face of the earth. Unless she's still singing downtown, but I can't tell if the schedules online are current or not.

Did you ever find out anything more?

I can assure you I have not fallen off the face of anything. I'm still writing and still singing. In fact, for a small fee, I can send you a demo of my music.
You can email M.J. Wilde (that would be me), with questions or comments at:

wildejara@aol.com

I'm in the process of creating my own website and will let you all know when it's up and running.
Thanks for thinking of me,
M.J.
