Gaylon For United States Senate        Biography
   
 
The Daily Dose
The Daily Dose has its roots in a long-forgotten daily sports column I wrote ages ago for an equally long-forgotten website. It was a combination of current stuff and an on this date segment.

When I started writing The Daily Dose in 2007 this format stuck with me, and I kept the On This Date feature, and added a trivia question and the Thought for the Day.

The demands of writing this column are high. They require no small amount of thought and they are not written in a few mintues so I usually put it on a reader-depleting hiatus when I am heavily involved in another project, like writing a book or, like right now, running for the United States Senate. - gk
