Gene Weingarten is a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist known for both his serious and humorous work. Weingarten’s column, Below the Beltway, is published weekly in the Washington Post Magazine and syndicated nationally by The Washington Post Writers Group, which also syndicates Barney & Clyde, a comic strip he co-authors. He is the former editor of the Miami Herald‘s Sunday magazine, during which time he hired Dave Barry, giving one of America’s best known humor columnists his big break. His newest [children’s, sort of] book, Me and Dog, addresses a kid, a dog and atheism in an incredible way. Gene’s own edit on Wikipedia: “A college dropout, he was somehow awarded a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard University.” (Note: his illustrator, Eric Shansby, may join Gene and draw while he speaks!)
