Creators Syndicate has begun distributing the column by progressive populist Jim Hightower.
The former Texas agriculture commissioner is also known for his radio commentary (on more than 150 commercial and public stations), his public speaking (he gives 100-plus talks a year), his award-winning political newsletter “The Hightower Lowdown” (which has more than 135,000 subscribers), and his weekly video blog on various Web sites.
Hightower is also the author of seven books, including the just-released Wiley hardcover “Swim Against the Current: Even a Dead Fish Can Go With the Flow.”
The late Creators columnist Molly Ivins once said: “If Will Rogers and Mother Jones had a baby, Jim Hightower would be that rambunctious child — mad as hell, with a sense of humor.”
