Featured Letter

Rich, come back!

Oh, how I hated to read Ralph Routon's article on Rich Tosches' decision to retire from writing his wonderful stories in my weekly Indy ("A farewell — unless Tosches changes his mind," Between the Lines, April 9). Every Wednesday for the past couple months now, my son brings in my Indy and sees the disappointed look on my face as I open it to the last page.

"Ranger Rich is not back yet, huh mom?" ... Sadly I'd say, "No, not yet."

I made several calls to your offices inquiring about Ranger Rich's column only to be told he was on personal leave and that it was not certain when he would return! Only during my last inquiry was I told that his dad had passed away. I sent a sympathy card and message to him and continued my wait for his articles to appear once again.
