A CHANGE IS GONNA COME
Friends, Romans, Countrymen…lend me your ears for this important announcement:
After serving more than a year as the administrator and editor of the Kennedy for President website, I’ll be leaving this gig September 1 to tackle a new book project.
But don’t worry – the site is in good hands. We have a wonderful group of volunteers here, and the work will continue as always under the watchful eye of our new editor, Tiger Haynes (who is every bit the fighting political animal his name implies).
Many more exciting changes are currently in the works – including a new domain name for the site (since Kennedy is obviously not running this year, RFKin2008.com is getting a bit outdated!) and a new look, too. We’ll be announcing those in the weeks ahead, so stay tuned for that!
ABSENT…BUT NOT REALLY GONE
Of course, I’m still one of Bobby’s biggest fans and feel fortunate to also call him a friend, so you can surely bet I’m going to miss this gig! Most of all, I’ll miss having the opportunity to interact with the amazing community we’ve built here on a daily basis.
Other professional and personal commitments in my life have left precious little time left to volunteer this fall. I decided it was better to turn the wheel over to someone else rather than let the quality of this blog slip. We all know Bobby deserves the very best we can give, so I hope he will be pleased with the new direction of this site as we move forward with our mission.
I’ll still be checking in from time to time here (like I could stay away!), posting comments, sharing thoughts and showing support. I’m still on board with the draft Kennedy movement 100%, and plan to keep in touch with many of you who have become very dear friends.
Thanks to everyone who has given such tireless support this past year. You guys and gals are the greatest!
Let’s keep this bus rollin’…and start organizing for 2012.
I’ll see you on the barricades!
Keep the faith,
PS – Our incoming editor, Tiger Haynes, asked me if I had any “famous last words” to post as the founding editor of the RFKin2008.com web site; some helpful bit of advice or encouragement for the troops. Hmmm…
After giving it a good deal of thought, I decided to share what has been my journalistic motto these past 20 years. It always served me well – may it do the same for you:
“Question authority…including the authority who told you to question authority.”
