I hadn't even thought to take seriously that the term opinionator was more than a cute old word that hadn't quite gone out of usage entirely. (Yes, for the record, it gets plenty of g-hits, and it was in old dictionaries, but it's not in the current Merriam-Webster's.)

Today's CapTimes has a piece on the editorial page about a formidable figure in local politics who just passed away, at only 36. He's described this way:
Jeff Erlanger, whom readers of the letters to the editor will know as a serial opinionator … .
If he was an opinionator, serial or otherwise, it's a very positive term around here.
