Our Rundown

Hart Seely

The Post-Standard

What does Hart Seely do? The question should be, what doesn’t he do? He’s been a reporter and master-ful writer for the Post-Standard for more than three decades. Some of the other titles he’s earned are author, essayist, humorist, political commentator, broadcaster and foreign cor-respondent.

Let’s elaborate on those in reverse order: Hart was em-bedded with the U.S. Army in Iraq during two reporting trips in 2005 and 2006; he’s heard on National Public Ra-dio, reading and commenting on his work. In his most recent book, "Mrs. Goose Goes to Washington: Nursery Rhymes for the Po-litical Barnyard," Hart Seely turns classic verses for children into hilarious com-mentary on our nation’s leaders. Sometimes he lets leader-generated silliness speak for itself, as it did in his 2003 work, "Pieces of Intelli-gence: The Existential Poetry of Donald Rumsfeld."
And in this day of short staffs and urgent searches for good local content, Seely needs only a telephone and a com-puter (powered by his bottomless well of ideas) to make feature-writing magic. And if that doesn’t sufficient-ly impress you, check out his baseball blog. Just one more answer to “What does he do?”

"News is the first rough draft of history."
--Philip L. Graham (1915–1963), U.S. newspaper publisher
