The time has come to say goodbye
After four great years the time has come for me to put Duke's Daily Blotter to bed.
I have had a great time and think that I have really made a difference for our cause.
My idea was to focus on public pension reform in Illinois and I think I have stayed pretty true to that.
Along the way we got involved in some really interesting issues and stories. Some that I had the pleasure of breaking for the first time.
With my working and becoming involved in some more charitable activities I just do not have the time I once had to devote to the daily work of keeping Duke's as updated as it has been.
I want to thank everyone for their support over the years.
I have made some friends and unfortunately I have lost a few over some of what I have written but I always remained true to myself.
I hope that what I have done has been helpful, entertaining and enlightening to all.
I will be doing one more story in June. I will be publishing it on Examiner.com and probably here as well. It will be a one year follow up story to the unsolved murder of my friend, Retired Sergeant Ron Susek from the Melrose Park Police Department.
I will be keeping the database of Duke's online so everything here will be here for awhile yet for folks that wish to search out any information.
Who knows what the future may hold. Maybe I will find a reason to bring Duke's back.
Every person that has read, commented, mentioned, even razzed Duke's Daily Blotter has made every day worth it and I will never be able to thank you all enough.
If I can ever be of assistance to anyone ro you just wish to chat email@example.com will always be available.
BEST WISHES TO ALL AND PLEASE BE SAFE.
Earl 'Duke' Filskov
