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.
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!
