Cathy and I pulled the plug (pun intended — kind of) on our Endnotes columns today. We'll keep this blog, hoewever.
I've been a journalist for 34 years, and I believe it's important to recognize that everything has a lifespan, including columns.
When I was a parks department “park lady” in the 1970s, our supervisors said to always stop children's activities while they were still interested in them.
We hope people still liked the column, but it was time to let it go. Questions were dwindling down and we noticed that issues of illness and death and dying appear now in every advice column. We knew the topic was trendy early on.
So thanks for reading the column. Please stay with the blog. And Cathy, thanks for all your hard work.
Here's the last column. Thanks for reading it.
