First if I may, I'd like to take a moment to thank our many supporters and loyal fans. It's been overwhelming. Truly. I'm told that while I was away, we received just over 600 emails, letters and cards (637 to be exact). Two people sent flowers. :) I'm touched beyond words. Suffice to say that all of us here are all deeply deeply grateful.
With that in mind, management has asked that I reconsider. Thought is that maybe we acted rashly. Hmmm... I know I didn't. A return is not in the cards, I'm afraid. But the fact that others may think so surely means that I owe friends, colleagues, and our readers a more detailed explanation. Here it is in a nutshell: I believe with every ounce of my being that the PR business is being eaten by a 10-headed hydra. Frankly, I think the future of our business is questionable at best and certainly undignified.

Independent Ref Gives the Blow-by-Blow
About a month ago, Jack O’Dwyer’s released a 13-point manifesto calling for the reform of PRSA. For the record, we really like Jack... a lot. But there’s a place where harping -- however constructive -- becomes harangue. I am afraid PRSA may just have him in that corner. And that’s too bad. Good and important criticisms and counsel can easily be discounted and missed.
Anyway, Joe Cortez was otherwise engaged so we asked good sport William Sledzik, APR, Fellow PRSA and Associate Professor/Public Relations at Kent State to step in and ref the fight. Bill does a fantastic job.
Without further ado...
