We met Lane Tobias during the fight to save the Ocean Beach branch library back in the fall of 2008. He enthusiastically joined our staff as the youngest blogger at the time and wrote for us for a year and a half. One of his posts about the lack of food stamps in San Diego County remains one of our most popular articles of all time.
Alas, Lane, originally from New Jersey, and his partner Carianne, had to permanently return to their roots this past week, and are currently driving across America as I type, driving back to the East Coast with their possessions and their cats. We always enjoyed his avatar – always got a chuckle from simply glancing at it – and we publish it here in its full regalia for all to see. Check Lane’s writings out – and if you want to see more – go to the sidebar and click on his name.
We all wish you luck, Lane, in your graduate school endeavors. Remember us – write us when you get the chance. Here is a sampling of his very versatile blogging over the past year and half:
