I am truly sorry to see Broadsheet go.
Yes, it does mean me getting my late night Sundays back. No longer have to spend 2 hours in from of the screen at 10pm, trying to corral my thoughts and reactions to the week’s political news into something publishable and occasionally readable. But it also means losing a valuable and varied platform from which to launch my views and analysis.
Over the course of the past 6 years and across almost 250 opinion pieces, I have enjoyed sharing my thoughts and analysis. I have even occasionally enjoyed reading the feedback. All of this without having a word of the material I submitted changed by the editor.
Though we were not always on the same page on every issue, or topic, not once was I asked to tone down what I had submitted. What you read here was what left my screen a few hours before… often with many of my typos and grammatical errors still intact.
Like many thousands of others I will miss Broadsheet, and miss the eclectic assortment of quirky and whimsical stories, doggie/cat pics, news items, and early sight of the next day’s front pages. It served its readers very well… and its contributors too. We will be the poorer for its demise.
Best wishes to all who helped and contributed over the years.
Frank Sinatra – Goodbye (She Quietly Says)
I see earlier that you were seeking some songs featuring the word Goodbye. Here (above) is my offering via Frank Sinatra. Actually this is from his old Watertown album (a flop when first realised in 1970), which is being re-released in special editions this week.
