To whom it may concern ...

... this little world, this precious plot ... this blog will be joining me in retirement. (To avoid any misunderstanding: This blog - slightly changed - and I will continue to partner.)


  1. Hi Frank, will you shift to a private blog? sure hope you do!

    Oh, good. I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't virtually drop in on you Frank -- you are a mental tonic, boy.

    Oh, thank heavens, Frank. I just posted on Petrona about your leaving, expressing the hope that you would continue blogging, so I am delighted to see that my wish (and many others' no doubt) has been granted.
    My very best to you, Frank -- make sure you spend your time doing what you want and not editing the style section ;-)

  4. Frank--please let us know what you will be doing in your post newspaper life!

    Good luck to you and I'm glad you will still be blogging.


  5. Perhaps it's the writer in me, but I read that as you're retiring the blog. I'm glad that you're not. (And thanks for mentioning "Ride", that was an unexpected pleasure.)

  6. Hope you keep it up, Frank, one way or another. You're too good at this stuff to give it up—unless you just don't want to do it anymore, in which case, blessings.

    BTW, I think your blog has been semi-hacked. All none-link text currently comes up in my browser as link text to the following site:


    Which seemed a little, um, off orbit.

    Best wishes—

  7. Seems okay now. Weird.

    Anyway, best wishes again.

  8. Frank,

    Since your blog is one of the few I read daily, this announcement was very good news. I'm willing to bet it pleased a whole bunch of people who were worried you were going to stop blogging as well as stop Philadelphia Inquiring. Good Luck with whatever is next!


  9. Frank, I am late to this news about you leaving the paper and the retirement of this blog. I felt very sad and couldn't imagine my days stripped of the pleasure of checking out your links and observations. You have been a star to many people. So now I am happy to see (if I read properly) that you will still have a presence in the blogosphere. That will be fantastic. Go well, Frank, and thanks for all your wonderful work here.

  10. Great news, Frank.

  11. Great news. Hopefully you'll find that being released from corporate bondage will be a fulfilling experience.

  12. Frank, you're one of the good guys and a true star in the blogging firmament. Great to know you're going to continue shining, I hope for many a long year yet.

  13. Frank, I must admit that I have been so busy with my CFBA organization and writing, that your retirement slipped by me.

    I am glad that you are keeping the blog going...it's the only culture that I get on a regular...er, uh..well when I'm busy...semi-regular...basis!

    Keep up blog, please!

    And happy retirement? what are you doing with all the free time?
