I hope you all have ways to enjoy the day. We are preparing for holiday eating and family gathered, and thinking of family members in other parts of the country and world. We are also thinking of Ruth Woods, my wife's mother, who passed away not long ago, and whose passing we marked yesterday.
I will be back with more regular blogging tomorrow. And the blogging is a reminder of how this job has changed in the years I have been doing it. While I went on the Beacon Journal payroll in late June of 1994, I think of Fourth of July weekend more as my work anniversary, since before then I had been filing remotely (by fax machine!) from my old home in Schenectady, NY. I came to work in Akron about this time in '94. I remember my first weekend coincided with the rib fest downtown. And on my way I went.
Today's mailbag is here.
