Yes, and I really mean it this time.
My sincere thanks to all who have read this blog or any part thereof. I hope it has been a useful source of information and analysis, regardless of whether or not you agree with my positions. In particular, thanks to everyone who sent me e-mail and my apologies for being so bad about responding. I also owe a debt of gratitude to those bloggers who linked to me and otherwise provided encouragement. In particular, I need to recognize Greg McClay of SHUSH; Jack Stephens, formerly of Conservator; Walter Skold, formerly of Freadom; and Stephen Denney.
A special mention should be made of the late Steven Vincent, the first "name" blogger/writer to link this site. It has been nearly three years since he was murdered by pro-Iranian Islamist thugs in the Iraqi city of Basra. He was truly a man of courage and conviction. RIP Steven.
Anyway, those looking for blogs by conservative or centrist librarians still have several choices:
-Annoyed Librarian (not that she really needs the PR)
-Collecting my Thoughts (A conservative Christian librarian: I think she de-linked me due to my being less than enamored with Mike Huckabee; oh well)
-Librarians for Fairness (Focused on Israel/Middle East issues)
-Finally, there is Stephen Denney's excellent banned books blog.
If I missed any, please feel free to add a link in the comments.
While I will be preoccupied for the next year and a half, I may well write again someday on the issues I discussed here. Whether or not that's a good thing is up to the reader. Any final questions, comments, or hate mail regarding this site can be sent to:
In the meantime, I can think of no better way to retire "Heretical Librarian" than with some Freedom Rock:
