This is my last chance to pontificate on our Opinions page. This issue is my last as editor, pencil sharpener (yup pencils, even for an online publication) and reporter for the Lansing Star. Or should I say publisher, editor, reporter, complaints department, filing clerk, receptionist, technical support person, and janitor? The Lansing Star is a mom and pop business (I'm the pop) so we do just about everything. But mostly it's been about popping out a new issue every week, and periodically trying to fix technical problems when they arise.
It's been a good 15+ years. At this point, putting togher my final issue, I am thinking about the dolphins trying to leave humanity a message as they abandon the planet shortly before the Earth is destroyed to make way for a hyperspace bypass in Douglas Adams's book The Ultimate Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy (book four in the trilogy).
Their message? "So long, and thanks for all the fish."
