Oh, dear. Apparently, even Kathy Shaidle's fellow Catholics have had enough of her:
Earth Day is crap, or: My last column for Our Sunday Visitor
Actually, that's not technically true: they wouldn't run it so I quit. I bet they're pretty thrilled right now, all things considered...
Now, I'm not normally a quitter; I've stuck through day jobs and freelance gigs in spite of heroin addict bosses and bounced pay cheques and 2-hour commutes (each way). But OSV was almost always asking for changes, and, frankly, the ROI just wasn't there.
So what was the problem, Kath? Oh, right ...
This time, they wanted me to "tone it down." And my "tone" is pretty much all I got.
Good point, Kath. When your literary output is utterly lacking in anything resembling facts, logic or reason, go with tone. Hey, it's carried you this far.
P.S. I'm fairly certain that having to manage Kathy Shaidle would be enough to drive me to heroin, too.
