He didn't write books about celebs or diet books or junk science. And all his royalties didn't equal what the loser earned in a fight at a Vegas casino. His books mattered.

A Life That Mattered
by
Walter Brasch         Michael Blake
died last week.       You probably
don’t know the name.       You probably
don’t know about his life.       You probably
don’t know most of what he wrote. That’s probably because he didn’t write diet
and exercise books...

Michael Blake died last week, on the day that two men shared $300 million to appear in a Las Vegas casino and try to beat the life out of each other. Blake never earned a fraction of what the loser earned. But, he was a writer whose works mattered. For his story, check out: http://www.walterbrasch.blogspot.com

Introduction
Walter M. Brasch.
I'm a journalist, a writer who looks at society and tries to understand, then analyze and explain its many complex parts as they relate to each other to help people better understand their own lives and what's both necessary and important to their lives. My weekly column appears in 30+ print newspapers and several dozen online newspapers. I also write books, often fusing social issues and history. I was a newspaper and magazine reporter and editor, and a writer-producer for multi-screen multimedia productions. I also retired as a professor of mass communications.
