End of the Day: 10/7/2008

Not my best day, I’ll admit.  But readers should know that I have no problem with criticism and trying to listen to the other sides of a discussion.  And when I’m wrong I’m wrong and will admit it.  I will admit that I was too harsh in my criticism of today’s goodbye emails.   Perhaps it was the fact that they came one after another.  Perhaps it was the reminder that many of us haven’t made it off the S.S. Heller Ehrman.  Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.


Tonight’s entertainment is over on the Lido Deck and we have the Icicle Works singing “Whisper To A Scream.”  Sometimes that’s very true.

    It’s okay, H.D., we still love ya and appreciate all you’re doing for us on this sinking ship.

    I’m in agreement with Anon. I appreciate all the information you have given us and completely understand about the goodbye emails. The emails were hard to read. Some frustration, but mostly sadness on my part. I want you to know that this website has given me some hope and light on the horizon. Change is alwarys hard. Don’t take the negative comments to heart. Take care and keep giving us the information we need on our sinking ship.

    You’re doing great work and providing a critical service. But if you’ve got a full head of steam going, you are right that you would be wise to wait to post. I really don’t think any of the shareholders wanted to cause anyone pain.

    HD – takes a big person to admit they were wrong. You’re VERY big! Bless you and thanks for everything.

    I will be honest, however, in saying that the ‘goodbye’ emails left a bitter taste in my mouth. I’m sure that they meant well but, whether they realized it or not, it really hurt reading an email from someone who’s found a cushy place to land – whereas I am still in Purgatory with my vacation vanished and my job prospects dismal as hell.
