I have to apologize for two things.
First, I know I’ve been MIA forever and a day but I’ve got a queue of cases to discuss to make up for the lack of posting.
Second, as much as I’ve loved reading The Phantom Prince with all of you, I got a letter from a lawyer asking me to take all the pictures down. As soon as I get confirmation that they are who they say they are, they will have to come down. I’m sorry guys! I thought because I was posting personal pictures from my own copy of an out of print book, it wouldn’t cause any trouble. I have explained that the purpose of the pictures is for discussion since the book is bonkers expensive and has been out of print for 30 years. But none of that matters because it’s Liz’s book and she’s allowed, under the law, to ask me to take it down.
I’ve been posting this for years now and in the beginning, I pondered if this day would ever come. And if it did, what would it look like. I always assumed it would be in a comment. Not an official letter from a lawyer literally listing every single link. That was a little bit scary. Don’t get me wrong, lawyer was super nice in the letter. It’s my first lawyer letter. It’s kind of like getting a speeding ticket for the first time. A tiny part of me wondered if whoever handled this also took the time to read the other stuff I’ve written. If Kyle is still out there, they are totally cool with me keeping my Fuck You Kyle posts, that wasn’t in the list of required links to take down.
The real question is did Liz read it… <—I’m too scared to ask myself that yet. My opinion of her choices at that time in her life aren’t exactly hidden throughout this blog.
Thus ends an era.
