The time has come for Belacqua Jones to ride into the sunset. It’s been a wonderful six-year run, but he’s finally come to the end of the trail.
Several factors played into this decision. First, and foremost, it just ain’t the same without George! The blog began as “Open Letters to George W. Bush.” After the election, I tried several different approaches, but none of them had the same bite.
I was also starting to feel constrained by Belacqua’s persona and point of view, and I noticed that my posts were drifting towards a more expository style.
However, even though Belacqua is gone, the snark and bite will remain. The only difference is that now I can have more fun.
I look forward to your comments and feedback.
