Senior Farewell: Chris Brucher
When I came to The Current, it was black, white and red in bits and pieces. Nowadays that’s probably still true, but I’d like to think it is read in a few more places. That probably isn’t the right battle to be picking though. I expect that it would be easier to pick the “no’s” cried when I brought it up. And I’m always for more ease.
Every editor ekes out their eternal duty in an almost ethereal environment that everyone and their mother says is ending. Are papers going away? Maybe. But then that’s a stupid question, because anything that’s going anywhere must be a way. That’s sort of inherent to movement. But then I digress.
Anyway, the experience here has been a great one. It may not have taught me to stop using passive voice like a moron, but it did teach me the value of the media, information and the voice of news in our world. With that all behind me, it behooves me to hope that the people reading this take some of that appreciation for themselves and hold on to it tightly. If even one person does, I’ll consider this whole experiment a success.
Thanks to The Current, its writers, its staff and, most of all, its readers. It’s been a thrill.
