After a decade and hundreds of columns, on March 1, and perhaps not soon enough for some, the last column of the Ole Seagull, entitled “An Ole Seagull’s last column is but a “Letter to the Editor,”’ was published in the Branson Daily Independent. Although, as a citizen of Branson, Missouri, “the live music show capital of the world,” he will attempt to continue to express his opinions on local affairs, those opinions will be expressed in “Letters to the Editor” and, on line, at “TheOleSeagull.com.”
Excerpts from the column:
He could write a lot of words about why, but in the final analysis it is simply because he thinks it is the right thing to do in terms of his current personal and business situation. Does that mean he will stop expressing his opinion?
For the opportunity, encouragement and help he has received over the years an Ole Seagull is eternally grateful and thankful. In terms of what he has written and how he has written it he will rely on the words Abraham Lincoln who said, “If the end brings me out all right, what’s said against me won’t amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.”
