So I'm walking through the exhibit hall when I catch a glimpse of Michael Durall sitting in the All Souls Tulsa booth. I pick up a printed copy of the UU Voice.
"You can have that for free," Durall says.
"Thanks," I say, ever the polite chick.
"Enjoy it," he said whistfully. "It might be the last issue."
"Why?" I asked.
"Well, I get tired of never hearing from anyone. Sometimes I put out an issue and not even one person writes me to tell me what they think.
I, of course, know the solution to this problem: insult the church of the sub-genius.
But I come up with a more self serving solution.
"Why don't you put it online, with each story easy to link to individually? I'm sure bloggers would comment on it." He gives me this hilariously skeptical expression. "So I'm guessing blogger response isn't worth what regular response is?" I fill in.
He doesn't say one way or another. We go on talking about the UU voice for a bit and I wander off.
I've been kicking around adding funny interviews with well-known UUs to my blog as a feature. But I think I will wait on asking Durall.
