Daniel M. DorothyExecutive Editor
I felt a light tap on my shoulder, looked around and straight up to the eyes of a lobster fisherman-turned-editor: Dan Dorothy
...In the two weeks that it took to produce that first issue, Chuck Pringle had filled the gap as Editor and a young American, Dan Dorothy, had been asked to step in to cover the Sports Writer's position, as the original writer had been posted overseas.
copy in one evening to be met by Peter saying, "Hey Dan, do you want to be the Editor?"Dan
would try it for two weeks.That was seven years ago and Dan's philosophy is that "There's no paper like us in the world.It is unique in the fact that it is all locally written but with international appeal.We are not restricted like the ‘big boys'.We are restricted only by our conscience."Under Dan's
most able stewardship, the Pattaya Mail
has grown and gained a large following and readership along the Eastern Seaboard.Dan feels that the paper has the potential to expand beyond our borders, by attracting good writers admitting, however, that some of the old ‘ad hoc' methods are still with the paper. Dan
quotes an example of a true ‘hands-on' approach when there was a change made to the masthead.Dan
described Peter sitting in a bar, chopping up the masthead and sticking the words down on bits of paper to take to the printers that evening.
says it "the opportunity the staff have been given here is such that it breeds loyalty, adding with his
infectious grin: "After all, I'm a lobster fisherman from Harpswell, Maine - where else could I be an Editor?" Where else indeed?"Perhaps one could add to this, certainly in Dan's case: Talent triumphed.Rather than hauling in lobsters in those inhospitable climes of the north eastern United States, he
was casting for linguistic purity.Why, he
even caught a Tasmanian on Beach Road one day and this Antipodean ‘fish' is still very much a dedicated Mail writer/photographer.Peter Malhotra summed up the progress rather succinctly, "Dan
has overseen growth and consolidation which has continued through to today.
Executive Editor Dan Dorothy
keeps an almost-avuncular eye over the entire paper every week, while trying to keep the sometimes unruly band of writers - both local and expats - under linguistic control.
Rather, I said to Dan
our Executive Editor on that occasion: "You guys are saying it all, I have nothing else to add."(This writer's aside: I doubt, that, Peter!)
...Some have been with us from the very beginning like Dan Dorothy, who is now our fearless editor.
Fearless in a sense that he
has never ever let the company down.I remember Dan saying to me a long, long time ago. ‘Peter, you gave me a job as the editor and by golly I am going to do that job to the best of my ability.If we don't see eye-to-eye sometimes we'll talk about it and we'll find a way to come to an understanding.If ever I am not able to fulfill my responsibilities, I'll quit' As Peter Malhotra said, "These words of Dan
have been embedded in my brain ever since and I repeat them constantly, with all my staff, old and new, instilling into them the ethics of responsibility and integrity."

Report by Dan Dorothy
...by Dan Dorothy, Pattaya Mail Chief Editor

I said to Dan our executive editor the other day, "You guys are saying it all; I have nothing else to say."The stories of the early days, with all the trials and tribulations throughout the years have been told over and over again, but they are really very fond memories indeed.Sometimes just reminiscing them, had us in fits of laughter and more than once, close to tears.
Each and every one of us has recollections of the time, or should I say of life at the Pattaya Mail
.Some have been with us from the very beginning, like Dan Dorothy, who is now our fearless editor.
Fearless in a sense that he
has never ever let the company down.
By the way, Dan
is now also a major shareholder, President and Editor-in-Chief of the Chiangmai Mail
To mention the team members by name would be about as useful as the list of ‘dark influences' currently being ‘suppressed' - a list of names and soon forgotten, but two people stand out from my little office desk viewpoint - Peter Malhotra and Dan Dorothy
...Dan Dorothy, Executive Editor of the Pattaya Mail (and now also president of the Chiang Mai Mail) had reached down to me and I turned to face him.
Although twice my size, he
was smiling, not the least bit menacing and he
was not even brandishing a stick."The boss wants to talk to you," Dan
drawled."Is this a summons?"I asked Dan
."Call it whatever you wish," he
Over the previous months, I had seen Dan
occasionally lurking around the Royal Varuna Yacht Club
, seeking stories in his
then role as Sports Editor of the Mail
.Obviously this "mysterious boss" had clearly seen Dan's potential and wanted to elevate him to higher callings and had figured out how to move him."Why that little Tasmanian yachting writer will fill in" and Dan
was dispatched forthwith to "recruit the little fellow", to join the "press gang" at the Mail
At Pattaya Mail
there is, and always has been, the utmost cooperation and willingness to help, so I say a personal ‘Thank you' to Dan Dorothy
and Brendan Richards - the ‘front men' I deal with, and congratulations to Peter Malhotra who has made it all happen.
