George Boardman worked at the San Mateo Times: Big whoop

Greg Knightbrook, Special Correspondent

Regular readers of George Boardman’s column in The Union newspaper know that his tagline is “correction,” alongside his email address (an ancient-sounding AOL account, no less).  A Google search is here.

George has claimed to work in Bay Area journalism, but his claim to fame was never The Chronicle or even The San Jose Mercury News. It was The San Mateo Times, now defunct. I worked at The Chronicle for 12 years, and his name never came up.

George’s claim to fame also was as a “business writer.” I’m not sure how that translated into stock market acumen, however. The details are here. ROFLOL.

The good news is that George can find a home in his Golden Years with a weekly column in The Union newspaper in the Sierra Foothills.

You go George! And while you’re at it, “get off my lawn.” Ha!
