William’s going out with a bang

All good things must come to an end, and although my Year in the Death of One Man series ended some time ago, the publication of my synopsis article for Inside Jersey magazine adds the final punctuation mark to what was a yearlong project.

IMG_0656There are a lot of people to thank, starting with William, who probably can’t hear me, but just in case, thanks buddy, I couldn’t have done it without you!

Next, I’d like to thank the Andover Cemetery Association for kindly granting permission for me and Inside Jersey to publish the photos. When I started the project, I didn’t bother to obtain permission to take pictures because I never imagined they would be seen by enough people — especially locally — for it to matter. But once the magazine picked up the story, it was decided that I’d need to obtain the cemetery association’s blessing, which was generously granted after the fact.

I’d like to thank my former colleague, Rosemary Parrillo, for discovering the project and thinking enough of it to give it six pages of Inside Jersey.  I have to admit it was nice to see my work published in good old-fashioned paper and ink again. Thanks also to the staff, including Pablo and Amanda, for helping make my words and photographs look spiffy.

IMG_0657What should also be apparent is that this post is a last chance for me to do a little grandstanding and perhaps point a few new people to the Year in the Death of One Man project, which is no longer being updated.

The February/March issue of Inside Jersey magazine will be available on newsstands in the New Jersey area shortly. I know Barnes & Noble is one retailer that carries it, and I’m sure there are others. If you live in the tri-state area, I hope you’ll consider buying a copy and doing your bit to save a starving journalist. For those living in other parts of the world, you have a better excuse, and the final article can be read HERE.

If you enjoy my synopsis and want to delve deeper, visit William at A YEAR IN THE DEATH OF ONE MAN.

  1. Imagine that — you’re back in actual ink, printed on real paper, which gnomes can use in their outhouses.

  2. Congratulations! Very exciting!
    (Gnomes only use the newspapers that feature stories about alien abductions in their outhouses.)
