Well, it's a little anti-climactic now...

Yes, I'm taking a break from DSD. From posting, anyway, I'll likely show up in the comments.

I don't have any good reason to take a break. Yes, I'm still working on that pilot script for the cop show about narcotics cops. In fact, I delivered a first draft to the network yesterday and now I'm waiting for their notes. When I started this I thought there would be plenty of blogging material and I could rant about the stupid network and their stupid notes and the stupid producers and their stupid notes but the truth is so far everyone's been very reasonable and the project is slowly moving forward.

But slowly is the key word so there's not a lot to talk about.

And I've started to write a new novel set in 1970 which I thought would give me plenty of material to blog about - oh, those wacky 70's - but really, other than me and Peter Rozovsky how many people are really interested in Mac Jones' average or Bill Stoneman's no hitter?

But I did want to this opportunity to thank everyone for allowing me to be a part of Do Some Damage. I hope to be able to show up with guest posts from time to time. It's been a lot of fun, I've learned a lot and I'm certainly going to continue to read DSD everyday.

Best of luck John and thanks for the valuable insight you have shared with DSD followers. I have learned a lot. Hope all goes smooth with the network gig and I'll be first in line to get a copy of that 70's novel when it comes out.

Good luck indeed.

I always enjoy a good dig into the 70s. What wasn't to like? Or to poke fun at? Any decade capable of giving birth to punk rock is worth its salt and, unless there's a parallel universe time warp going on, that's not going to be happening again.

Take care,

Good luck with the pilot. Keep us posted.

Don't worry about how many people are interested in the 70s. Just make sure Coco Laboy gets in there and you'll do fine.

Good luck in your future endeavors sir. Enjoyed your posts!

Can we all get drunk now?

What? It's not a wake?

And why do they call it a wake, poor John ain't going to wake anytime soon.

Oh, yeah? Sorry. I thought this was a wake.

I was but a little guy in the 70s, so historically I think I'd enjoy a good 70s romp. Just like that show with Mr. Demi Moore.

John, good journeys and good writing. Hope to see you soon.

And, may you have an hour in Heaven before ... oh, yeah, not a wake.

We'll miss you. Don't leave.

Please keep in touch, John. I will miss you and your darn liberal politics.

I can totally understand the decision, John. I hope this means we'll see you comment more often on some of the other blogs we frequent.

Don't forget that Bill Stoneman pitched a second no-hitter, in 1972, I think, which I would have seen, but I couldn't get any of my so-called friends to go to the game with me. Those of us who care about such things care about them passionately.
