Recently the Oakland Press stopped printing the weekly advice article from Dear Crabby.
If you have enjoyed these articles the last three and half years or so, please take a moment to write or call.

I enjoy reading Dear Crabby and think it should continue to appear in the Oakland Press. The humorous articles give me a lift on a somber day. Please print the columns again.
These columns were very interesting and useful. Please put the column back in the Oakland Press.
When your article didn’t appear a short while ago I thought you just took time off for the holidays. Finally I called the editor today (Monday, Dec. 30th) and left a message.
I was pleased that Glenn Gilbert took the time to call me right back. He said it for ‘space’. I thought ‘office space’ for a moment until it dawned on me what ‘space’ really meant.
He said I was only the 3rd caller to complain. I know there are more than just a few of us devoted followers out here. Your article was the first my wife Cathy and I turned to when we opened the paper. Most days she got it first.
I don’t know how to get the word out, nor if it would help change anything. It seems odd to me. How can the newspaper stop printing something I like so much? Aren’t other people just like me? If so, you should get hundreds of e-mails like this. No, maybe thousands!
