A distinguished alumnus of Mercer University as well as the Walter F. George School of Law, Robert L. Steed is a partner in the Atlanta law firm of King & Spalding. In his limited spare time he attends the opera and rock concerts; shops with his wife; talks on the telephone; scouts the latest designer labels; buys and repairs autos; watches golf matches, joggers, and politicians; reviews country music; defends "religious" leaders; among other things. Reflecting on all this (and more), he records his impressions of life's passing parade in his occasional op-ed columns in the Atlanta Constitution. Now for those who may have missed one or more of these columns as well as constant readers who may have noticed that their newsprint clippings are beginnings to fade, here is the "authorized" collection of Bob Steed's funniest-on acid-free paper, no less. As a student columnist during his Mercer Cluster days, Steed delighted students and faculty with his regular "Willard" columns. In maturity he continues to delight us with his perceptive observations of the contemporary scene. He also answers such burning questions as: Can a doctor who lists his home telephone number be trusted?; Is jogging really good for you?; Are automakers misanthropic?; Are designer labels on the way in/out? When Steed's earlier collection of columns (Willard Lives! The Best of Willard Clutchmyer) was published, the reviewer for the Macon Telegraph and News observed that he "is very much an original whose past and present work has made a funny, funny book." He still is; and it still does. Steed's Newest collection-which fellow columnist Lewis Grizzard hails as "terrific"-is enhanced by the drawings of Jack Davis, one of America's most highly regarded cartoonists. A native Georgian, his work has enlivened such publications as National Lampoon, Mad, Time, and TV Guide.
