Lamenting The Glob

The Time Tunnel

It was recently announced that the print version of the Global Exclaimer is no more. This was (if not noble) a worthwhile experiment and possibly the future – as well as the past – of print journalism. And yet, life gets in the way of some of our more worthy pursuits – print periodicals cost time, effort, creativity and even something others want to hear about, but in the final analysis it costs money… who in these times has a surplus of that?

And so the GLOB is dead, if not for good reasons at least for reasons I can understand. From the ashes of the GLOB may rise another GLOB experiment – GLOB BLOG. Seems ironic somehow (this experiment within an experiment) – will it “take”, will GLOB BLOG soldier on in a different way from print GLOB? “The times they are a changin’” indeed.

Dear Buck,

Thank you for your letter. I am glad to see that you can still post to The Glob Blog – I feared your long silence meant you had forgotten your password, or worse, lost interest! Sometimes it takes a tragedy to make us remember what we have!
