- This is a job I've been doing for more than 12 years. (I know. Let it go, Grandpa.) And I'm going to miss it.
- There are more people than me involved. I have a whole slew of writers and another editor who have been involved in this particular publication. A number of the writers have won awards -- several, more than one -- for the material that they published in this publication.
- The decision to shut down the publication is being made by someone in this very large publishing corporation who basically didn't even know the publication existed before it came time to renew the contract. (In all fairness the official decision hasn't been made yet. And I did survive a similar situation several years ago.)
- I got the heads up in an email sent long after I would ordinarily be in my office from someone I thought I had the kind of relationship with that would have earned me the courtesy of a phone call.
I just now decided it doesn't really feel good to bitch in public. (I'll keep bitching to S. That's part of our contract. I have to listen to her and she has to listen to me.) I am sorry about my writers maybe having to find other outlets in this very specialized market. But they'll do all right. They've won awards.
So, who is this guy More. That's what ...45 and aspiring asked me (She also said, "Poor b*st*rd sure has a lot of articles written about him.") when she sent me a link to an article with this headline:
