They're On Sabattical, But We'll Wait
A couple of friends who are powerful thinkers, doers and communicators in their very different (but thoroughly compatible) niches have gone on long blogging sabatticals. Here's hoping that both Ron Copfer and Mary Beth Matthews get back to their blogs when they're good and ready to do so. Their insights are so valuable because their activities are so varied and vital, so I want to cut them the maximum break possible. Ron is one of the region's leading web entrepreneurs, and also likes to stick his nose in the political realm from time to time, when he's not sounding off in regional policy planning councils. MB is, hands-down, our leading figure to bear witness from inside the front lines of the urban classroom. I'm hungering to learn what they're both thinking on a bunch of issues. Then again, maybe that's all the excuse I'd need to invite them both to lunch sometime and hear about it all in person. But given their energy, those could well prove to be two of the longest lunches in recorded history.
