Francis X. Clines’s Career, What was his profession?

Francis X. Clines is The Times’ lyricist. He applied for a position at The Times after being discharged, and in large part because of an essay he wrote outlining his aspirations for a journalism career, he was recruited. After a year of office work, he started writing radio news reports for WQXR, The Times’ AM and FM stations, before taking on general assignments and covering the police beat.

Pompousness may be reduced in a number of ways, which is one of the reasons Mr. Clines enjoyed covering the State Legislature in Albany. With a Celtic sense of the absurd, he examined the mores of lesser-light legislators in addition to the drumbeat of new laws and tax proposals: their overblown rhetoric about public service, their impolite eating habits during debates, and their losing battles with the native tongue — all of which were fair game and duly reported.
