Boca Raton News Folds; a New Career Begins

Crosby, Still and Nash at Seminole Hard Rock, Then the Fall

Hello everyone,

This is the first- no, make that the fourth day of the rest of my life. On Friday, Aug. 21 the doors of Boca Raton News were closed, presumably forever. It was the end of a 40-year career for me.

They say an online version will continue, but until something involving me is confirmed, I reckon a blog is better than nothing. I have been writing something every single day for more than 30 years, so it's hard to get out of the habit.

I'm going to continue to write reviews and reports on things I've done in the course of covering arts, entertainment and society. Once I get the hang of this I'll try to add photos.

The night before Boca News died, I got a surprise invitation to see Crosby, Stills & Nash at Seminole Hard Rock. In view of what went down later, I'm really glad I went. The lads were surprisingly good, and their backup band was terrific.
Particularly surprising to me was David Crosby, who was hands-down the funniest of the three, and has a surprisingly clear, high tenor that makes him still sound like a teenager.
Tom Craig shot a couple photos I'll try to post.
If any of you out in blog land read this and care to comment, I invite you.

After all is said and done,
