DICK JOHNSON BEGINS NEWEST STREAK OF CONSECUTIVE E-SYLUM POSTS

As most regular readers are aware, one of our most prolific correspondents is Dick Johnson, who seems to have a submission in just about every issue. Good news and bad news about that - the bad news is that Dick's latest submission streak has ended. The good news is that he's started a new one with four submissions in the current issue.

It's not Dick's fault - he makes an earnest effort each week and last week was no exception. But due to demands of the holiday and my overflowing inbox, I didn't get around to responding to his submission until just before press time late last Sunday.

Dick writes:
For the last 135 weeks there has been one or more items written by Dick Johnson in every issue The E-Sylum, but not a one in issue #52, the last issue for the year 2008. This despite a news story on an interview with the head of the Russian Bank sent at 2:01 Sunday in ample time to make the issue. The last time an E-Sylum was sans Johnson was issue #26 in 2006 where he had filed three articles in time for insertion.


I'm not sure what went wrong in 2006, but this time I decided to pass on Dick's submission. Unfortunately, the hour was so late Dick didn't have time to rework or replace it. But he's back again with some great submissions, and I was able to work last week's item in, too. Sorry, Dick, and welcome back!
