Strange Herring is quitting

Strange Herring, is going on hiatus. That’s one of my favorite blogs! The pillar of my old age! This is the second time an Anthony Sacramone blog has gone on hiatus. I’m still mourning the absence of Luther at the Movies. He says that blogging has become a chore and he wants to stop before it becomes a bore. How about this Cranach blog? It is sometimes a chore, but you don’t see me going on some hiatus. As for “Strange Herring” becoming a bore, he should let us be the judge of that. (In our household, if any of our kids said that he or she was “bored,” that would bring down harsh punishment for using the “b” word. That meant hours doing some improving activity.) I’m not surprised that Mr. Sacramone became a burned-out case. He would put up like a dozen posts a day. All you need is three! Or four! When you get on a roll, save the posts as drafts and post them throughout the week, automatically if you have the right software. All he needs is a little vacation at the beach and a greater sense of responsibility. We need all the Lutheran humor we can get. (More on that later.)

    Given the quality and quantity of his output, it comes as no surprise Strange Sacramone Luther Herring is taking a break. I don’t even have enough time just to read all of his posts, to say nothing of researching, profiling, characterizing, and writing them. Funny guy; I hope he returns soon.

  • How disappointing! I just recently became aware of an Anthony Sacramone and a “Strange Herring.” Now what?

    I’m not surprised that Mr. Sacramone became a burned-out case.

    Maybe “Strange Herring” was just a little smoked.

    All you need is three! Or four!

    That’s all I ever see in a can.

    All he needs is a little vacation at the beach

    The salt water will do him good; and take some SPF 30 so he doesn’t become pickled.

    We need all the Lutheran humor we can get.

    Or, now that “Strange Herring” is gone… some lutefisk!
