Hello I’m self-appointed WLHA editorial director Dan Smith and here’s what makes me grumpy…News reporters who insist on telling me how to live my life. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a few tips about where to get this or that done…but do I really need tips on how to drive on icy roads from someone who got their license a week ago? Should I listen to advice about what to eat from someone who chugs an energy drink for breakfast while texting his or her others for advice? Should I heed to warnings of high cholesterol from someone who’s still on the parent’s health insurance?

My advice? Stop listening to advice…good or bad…and see if your life changes. But hey, if it helps you drive on icy roads, eat more vegetables and live a better life, don’t let this advice get in your way. I’m grumpy old Dan Smith.
