About the speaker

Frank Cerabino’s long, strange trip as a columnist at The Palm Beach Post started during the William Kennedy Smith trial and has been through hanging chads, anthrax attacks and now, perhaps most enviably, through the gold-leafed extravaganza that starts every time Donald Trump rolls into the Winter White House just across the Intracoastal Waterway from the Post offices.

He might even play the accordion, with the right kind of encouragement.
