The Time Has Come to Step Down

BabyTex ND Cry

I honestly can't even believe that I am about to write these words, but, as Bayou said earlier this morning, I have resigned from my post as editor-in-chief of Her Loyal Sons. Before I get started, I want to congratulate Bayou, Moons, and Jude for their respective promotions.

Of course, the … [Read more...]

Fare Well, Be Good, Amen.

It has come to my attention that a fine young man named Ryan Ritter is stepping down from his lofty post as the boss of all the bananas here at Her Loyal Sons. I regret this. But I wish him well.

I support him, I pray for him, and we should all be grateful for his work. As we say, life … [Read more...]



Tex is stepping down as Editor-in-Chief of Her Loyal Sons. It took me ten minutes to form that sentence, such is the suddenness and relative importance of the fact. In the five years I have been writing for this site, Tex has been a constant in my experience. He hired me over a series of emails. He guided me through posting, through administering, and through writing. None of you see the attention he gives his staff. The texts. The emails. The telephone … [Read more...]
