Good night and... Good luck
Permit us to be nostalgic, for a moment. The making of this Weblog has been, with several pauses in between, a matter that has taken us years. Week after week, and post after post we've seeked an opinion of our own in the chaotic stream that is news. we haven't failed, but it has taken us to a point where opinion did not matter no more.
To go on wouldn't be pointless, but our lives have changed since we started, some years ago. Once or twice, we've seen other people write along. It's been fun, and we're all in good terms. However, to-day we've been left to ourselves, and it is not the same. To be a one-man newspaper has been, during all History, a proving task, of which we can't be certain to be worth of.
This document shall prevail, online on Blogger servers, until someone decides to shut down the whole thing. It shall prevail as a testimony of its time. A free opinion, from a Catholic point of view, of how the world was... and became. With terrible blank spaces in between, of course, but... so is the bigger part of History.
Someday, it might born again, but for the sake of our professional goals, we wish to give up a little of our independence, to be a lesser worry to some, and from the selfish attitude that is to be left alone. This is been worth fighting for during some time, but the Weekend Update could not be abandoned at a better moment, where news in Spain, and abroad have no point of continuity, where agendas are too obvious to be unmasked.
And as the "patron saint of American broadcasters" used to end his show...
Good night, and Good luck.
May God bless you all.
