Dear Subscribers,

This is the day I normally would be posting my blog, but there isn’t one to post. My editor has told me that The Statesman’s executive editor is reducing the frequency of my columns from every other Sunday to once a month because of cutbacks in the paper’s freelance budget. I’ve also been told that the one I submitted last week for yesterday’s newspaper, a followup to my November cancer diagnosis column and my October column on the dangerous railroad trestle bridge over Capitol Boulevard, either is being held or will not be published. I’m sorry not to be posting a column for you today, and sorry that this has happened.

Tim Woodward
