Dear Weirdettes and Weirdbros,
I am retiring very soon from News of the Weird and Weird Universe.
My final weekly NotW column (my 1,534th) will be posted on July 2nd,
ending 29-plus years in the saddle (28 of them as distributed by
Universal Press Syndicate, now known as Universal UClick).  (I don't
know what Universal's plans are for the column, and I am not part of that
discussion.)  The reason for retiring is that I am simply exhausted, i.e.,
so many stories to process, slower-firing synapses with which to process
them.  In fact, my synapses don't so much "fire" these days as they kinda
"lurch."  I know that some of you (because you're kind) will be moved to
shout out a few nice words to me, but, as I say, I am exhausted and thus
may not (or may) respond.  Just let me say that I will forever and ever be
so very grateful to readers (and editors) for allowing me this gig.  Y'all
take care of yourselves.
Unsentimentally Yours,
Chuck Shepherd
