I just finished reading the new Journal from cover to cover, and I want you to know how much I appreciate the work you put into this issue (continuing your record, of course).
I always like it when you put down your blue pencil and do your own thing. Salvage Dawgs was great! I’m not that far from Roanoke, so should plan a day trip down to see the place.
I also thought that the Legacy theme was inspired and I hope, widely appreciated. Of course, I have a bias and thought the Nabhan article was the best.
I bet we’ll recruit several “sleepers” (legacies who don’t mention their family connection) in the future as a result of today’s Journal. A very good use of our venerable publication.
You’ve transformed the Journal (and I perceive several other things), and we need you to preserve what you’ve improved and built. I’ve been around for a long time, and I can’t think of another era in the history of the Journal that has seen such remarkable improvements. Under your hand, we have a world-class publication that has to be the envy of all Greek organizations, as well as many outside our sphere.
All the best to you!
