A Dubious Anniversary

Ten years ago today was my last as editor-in-chief of Back Stage West, the weekly actors' trade paper I joined 10 years previously (on Sept. 14, 1993). I just marked this anniversary by filling out an invoice for an upcoming short piece that will appear next week (I think) in the new national Backstage (it's an encomium to one of my favorite film performances). It will be my first proper byline in my old stomping grounds since, well, 2003 (I was asked to contribute a brief recollection on Back Stage's 50th anniversary here).

I don't know what to say, except: It's been a long time. Life is short. I take it all back.
