Former Kansas City Star Columnist Yael Quits Blog And Joins Peace Corps!!!
He didn't earn much traction on the Internets but garnered quite a few shares and comments via the social media echo chamber.
In his latest post he offers deets on his upcoming African adventure and some perspective on his brief stint as a blogger:
"The blog allowed me to continue writing my rather frank — and dare I say mostly liberal — opinions about local, state and national politics, along with a few other issues of interest.
"The wonderful readers of this blog often commented positively — and negatively — on it through Facebook and Twitter. Many chipped in donations to support my work.
"But all things come to an end."
And so, the blogosphere loses another scribe and a great many angry opinions targeting local politicos.
Call this a victory for Prez Trump or maybe the postscript to a Kansas City journalism career.
You decide . . .
