The Slow Exit, Part 1

Times change.

So, too, must responsibilities, and one that's just been getting crowded out of my available life space has been the few hours I need each week to dig up entertaining poker stories and present them here on a very regular basis. It's been a struggle for some months, and I've come to realize that I can't fully do the job here justice any longer. My next few months are only going to get busier, and like the title of Marilyn Monroe's last, unfinished movie, something's got to give. Unfortunately my health's been giving a bit... and that won't do.

What it means is that in all likelihood I'll be moving on, and posting here less frequently over the next couple of months, though I plan on hanging around long enough so that KAP bosses Jason and Brad and I can find a writer worthy of the gig, someone who can blend equal parts poker knowledge and bullshit detector. There are other factors as well, and maybe I'll return to those in my (more or less) final post here in a few weeks, unless I can figure out a way to be poster emeritus or something. I'd still like to able to throw occasional pieces into the mix here, but I just can't do it on the same regular basis I did during '06 and '07. That's for the KAP guys to decide, of course.

Above all else, I remain very thankful for the opportunities they've given me. I'd like to do more for them, because they're good guys and have tried to create a decent little poker niche here, and I plan on continuing to link to them and up-selling them quite a bit. If you're interested (and talented, at least an itty bit), give them a holler.
