As 2012 gets underway, Carl will be leading CWR into its online future – we will continue to provide our readers with the kind of hard-hitting articles you’ve come to expect from the print edition of CWR, while expanding the variety and timeliness of the content we offer as an exclusively online publication.

“I take on that title and responsibility with a mixture of trepidation and optimism,” Carl writes. “Trepidation because I am keenly aware of the standard of excellence that CWR has maintained for two decades, and optimism because I think CWR has much to offer its readers in the years to come, and I believe the Internet provides a means of responding to events and news with a flexibility and immediacy not always available with print.”
