Dispatch from The Front Line: Time for some thoughts and prayers, then, eh?
We are sitting ducks and everyone knows it, not that anyone is doing anything about it.
Hello, Line readers. We start with a sad note: long-time B.C. columnist Gordon Gibson has passed away, aged 86. Gordon was a generation or two ahead of your Line editors in the biz, and we never met him personally, but he was a huge fan of us and The Line and was a big, big supporter of our work behind the scenes. He didn’t have to be — he chose to invest his time and money in helping us get this little publication off the ground and offered good advice and encouragement. We wish we’d taken the time to thank him more, and we’ll miss him. This edition of the dispatch is dedicated to his memory. Thank you, Gordon, for everything. Godspeed.

We know we ask this every week, but it really does matter: whatever your app of choice, please subscribe, leave a review, “like” and all the rest. Tell your friends! Share! Help us grow! Thanks again.
A final note: due to personal and family obligations this week, The Line will be only lightly staffed, but never fear. We are going to take this chance to get caught up publishing some of the great stuff we’ve been holding onto over the last few weeks due to the war. Our podcast will continue as normal next week, though, so do hit those apps!
And now, as always, on with the dispatch.
