ABSTRACT
The article features novelist John O'Hara, whose column has been dropped by several newspapers. According to "Chicago Daily News" executive editor Larry Fanning, O'Hara became a personal pulpit that bored their readers. It also mentions that O'Hara, who was oftentimes terminated in work, made for a wide range of tempers and campaigned greatly to bile as a preacher. He believed that like his movie producer, he can play equally good as a column if only he had time.
