Giving Thanks to The Thankless Who Were Essential to My Thankfulness

 November 23, 2022

   This is going to sound counter-thankful, but I really need to thank all the naysayers and critics who predicted doom and gloom at True West.

Our first cover, January 2000

   Without them, I don't think I would have had the strength or the courage to keep going. Several times I wanted to give up (ask Carole Glenn, if you don't believe me), but it would have proved them right. Also, two of my original partners had large nest eggs and bailed when the getting was good. Me, I had no choice but to stay and fight and even that was a blessing. 

   So, here's to all the flaming assholes who made me want to prove them wrong. I am so thankful for each and every one of you.

Meanwhile, The Real Thanks Belongs Here

   And, it must be said once again, that two women saved True West and I am the most thankful to both of them.

Carole Glenn and Kathy Radina

The Moral?

   Funny what you can accomplish when you have no other choice.

"Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway."
