To all ReaderRant members:
I have decided to take a break from writing a column for a while. My columns have become repetitious and I'm stuck in a rut of "America is doomed" and am quick to judge those who have partisan beliefs.
Maybe my recovery from last year's near-fatal accident is not complete. Maybe I'm just tired. I don't know. I do know that Capitol Hill Blue has strayed recently from its mission and that is my fault. I have asked Megan, the publisher, and her staff to take more control over the news side for the time being and help guide it back on course. The moderators here on RR do an excellent job and any recent problems have been my fault, not theirs.
I'm going to concentrate on my day job. Yes, I'm still a newspaperman who covers government, courts and features for BH Media papers in Virginia and I shoot video for TV stations and web sites. I'm also going to concentrate for a while on reviving an old news site that has been dormant since I went down on my motorcycle in last year's bovine encounter.
Carry on folks and, if you get a chance, wonder over to the news site at www.capitolhillblue.com
, read the stories and support the efforts of the crew there to restore it to the glory it once had.
Take care folks. I'll check in when I have time but will refrain from commenting and all editing actions will be limited to the moderating crew here.
