Best Newspaper Columnist St. Louis 2007 - Dana Loesch

Readers' Choice: Bill McClellan
Dana Loesch, who pens the "Mamalogues" column on stltoday.com, picks up where Anna Quindlen left off in her tales of young motherhood, substituting Quindlen's sap for a heavy helping of sass. A twentysomething stay-at-home blogger/mother of two young sons, Loesch says she writes to keep herself "off the bottle." Great thing is, reading her feels like a conversation exchanged over a couple of barstools. No didacticism, no euphemisms — just straight and hilarious shots of life, in all its muckiness, begging to be chugged from the Post-Dispatch Web site. "Mamalogues" used to appear in the Post's print version, too. But Loesch's tell-all style was deemed a little too honest for the geezers who've come to dominate the daily-newspaper demo, and the editors yanked the column from the paper last December after only a six-month run. If a weekly hit of "Mamalogues" ain't enough, get your fix at Loesch's blog, mamalogues.com.

Great selection! As a mom with a little boy, Dana gives me a fresh way to look at mothering on a daily basis (as well as how to deal with a crazy family, nutty neighbors, good friends who suffer - seems I have everything but the horny husband!). Thanks, Dana!

(Looking a bit sheepishly here) Yes, I am one of her male readers. So addicting. Very worthy of such great honor. It's fun, as we relate from being a homeschool family, too.

I can't say it better than Julie already did (and everyone else before her). I so look forward to Dana's column and her posts and sure miss her when she's "gone", even for a day.

Great blog. I laugh with her, cry with her and never fail to appreciate her sense of humor and sarcastic wit.
