Byline: David Plotnikoff

In aggregate, these 50 pieces form something more than a connect-the-dots portrait of my 18 years at the San Jose Mercury News -- yet something less than a complete mosaic. In selecting only 50 entries out of more than 1,800, I have favored the stories that were the most personally rewarding or memorable -- not necessarily those that were deemed most significant by others.

I hope you enjoy the reading as much as I enjoyed the writing.
