I am a one-time winner of the New York Press Association's Best Humor Columnist award in its annual "Better Newspaper" contest. My blog, "The Gad About Town," is about many topics, from social habits to baseball to art and movies. I am a gad about town. I have had many writing and copy editing jobs, including editing websites and creating instruction manuals. In the early 1990s, I became a writer and performer with a radio comedy group, the Magnificent Glass Pelican, which continues to perform. I was diagnosed with a form of spinocerebellar ataxia in 2012, which was refined to a form of spinal muscular atrophy in 2014, and will publish updates and discoveries about my illness on my blog. about.me/markaldrich and www.facebook.com/thegadabouttown and twitter.com/Mark_S_Aldrich
