Zachary Klein & Susan Kelly
For about five years Just sayin’ and Kelly & Klein have been pretty consistent with our weekly eclectic columns. For most of that time readership has held pretty steady, hanging with us as we tried to make our way through the arts, music, politics, and sundry other subjects. And it’s been fun.
But there something about overstaying a welcome that leaves a bad taste on everyone’s lips. Well, frankly, we’d rather pass on that given the warm welcome we’ve received throughout all these years.
Here’s the rub. We still enjoy writing but neither of us is interested in a weekly deadline—especially since that deadline has begun to feel like required writing rather than an act of pleasure. So, given the feedback we’ve received, Susan and I have decided to forgo the weekly column and will write when and if we feel like it. If either of us decides to write a column we’ll send out the usual notices to the usual places so folks, if they so choose, can drop in to see what’s on our minds.
To be sure, Susan will cast her humorous eye on the world around us and, no doubt, I’ll get pissed off enough to whack on someone or something—as well as continuing my INTERVIEWS WITH THE DEAD.
Since I’m not at all sure when I’ll be here next, I want to thank all the guest contributors who have helped maintain a diverse and interesting Monday. And of course I want to thank ALL our readers, especially those who have commented at various times about our column’s content.
These columns have been a joy for us to write and hopefully for you to read, so since “It’s so hard to say au revoir, let’s just say hors d’oeuvre.”
