Welcome to my blog, “The Port Rail.” It doubles as a home page. The old home page which dates to almost thirty years ago is still available at www.lanthonyclayton.com. The page you are reading now updated to 2023.

You can read some of my OpEd columns, The Port Rail, which appears weekly in the Northport Gazette, one of our hometown newspapers. Other OpEds appeared for about ten years on The Tuscaloosa News which you can read and search online. Others have appeared in national newspapers like the Miami HeraldLos Angeles Times, etc. You can search for my columns in their search engines.

You can go directly to my books on Amazon Author Central. Just toggle on the link on the left.

BTW, I spent a lot of time on the “port rail” (starboard one also!) looking out to sea while on the USS Donner (LSD 20) in the Caribbean and Mediterranean in cruises between 1964 and 1966. The view was sometimes magnificent while at sea, astonishing sometimes while in port (Port au Prince, Haiti, fall, 1965 for example).

So join me on the “Port Rail” as we explore what passes before our view. Just navigate to “Posts” on the menu above to get started, or simply toggle on one of the topics under “Categories” on the vertical box on the left side of this page.
