Two Old men

Former newspapermen Reporter Howard Appell (left) and Editor Corrin Strong (right) worked together at the Lake and Valley Clarion newspaper in Geneseo, NY  from 1995-2005.

They're baaaaack!
Howard and Corrin have been retired from the newspaper business for many years. Corrin owned The Lake & Valley Clarion weekly newspaper in Geneseo, NY from 1989 until he closed it in 2007. Howard continued to work as a reporter at another paper until 2014, after leaving The Clarion in 2005.

Growing increasingly frustrated with the state of journalism today, Howard (72) and Corrin (71) have decided to come back and do video commentaries on the State of the World and the journalists who mainly fail to cover it! Admittedly, they are a couple of cantankerous old men with differing strong opinions on many things, but they do agree that those damn kids who are goofing everything up!

The name of the show is a homage to our hero Dr. Vernon Coleman, a British doctor, who records a regular video series on health issues called, "An Old Man in a Chair." Please check him out, although you won't find him on YouTube or other controlled platforms, as he keep getting censored!
