Well, we’ve just put out a fine, fine issue of The New York Observer, if you ask me. And it’s a double issue! Which means that all of us now have a week in which to produce no issue of the Observer. Which means we’re all fleeing town.
Don’t really expect us to post to The Real Estate till July 5, unless one of us gets drunk and decides to ruminate on the pleasures of listening to Herb Alpert and Tijuana Brass while sitting on a porch upstate, or in Maine, or in Matewan, drinking Fog Cutters.
We’ll be back with intern Max Abelson’s Morning Read stylings earlier than you on July 5, so don’t count us out for long. And keep writing and calling. We love all of you crankpipes!
