  1. Lou Burruss Announces End Of Column At Skyd

    Lou Burruss, perhaps the most influential columnist in ultimate media, has announced that he will no longer be writing a column for Skyd Magazine.

    He writes:

    It’s a time decision. My family is at a crucial turning point: My youngest child entered school this fall and my wife returned to paid work after years of managing our home and homestead. Like all changes, this is a mixed blessing. Our bank account will be happier, but we will be more stressed and more harried. My freedom to say, “I’ve got to write my post tonight, can you cook/feed the chickens/put the kids to bed?” is gone.

    For years, Burruss was — and will surely continue to be — a key influencer in the ultimate sphere. His blend of reporting, opinion, and analysis will be missed.
