Over the years, Max Boot (pictured) has worked as an editorial writer and op-ed editor for the Wall Street Journal, assistant national editor at the Christian Science Monitor and as a columnist for the Los Angeles Times. During his high school days in Reseda, California, he was the editor of both the official Cleveland High School newspaper and a second underground publication there.
