Profile: Hugh MacDonald



I've been writing for The Herald for 40 years, though regular readers swear it seems longer. I've been chief sub-editor, literary editor, deputy sports editor, chief sportswriter and now a Saturday columnist. Opinion is divided on whether this is a testimony to my versatility or a judgment on my inability to hang on to a job.
