06/09/2006 Archived Entry: "Leaving JPFO"

AS OF JUNE 23 I'll be leaving JPFO. I may still do special projects -- for instance, RebelFire writing, if there is any. But no more regular writing of articles, newsletters, alerts, etc. (a task I've shared with the saintly Richard W. Stevens and more recently with our own Webmistress of the Dark, Debra).

This is the friendliest possible ending to a long freelance relationship. I think the world of both Aaron Zelman and JPFO. I've done some of my best work with them, including Innocents Betrayed, The State vs. the People, and my very favorite, RebelFire: Out of the Gray Zone.

I admire Aaron especially for being one of the few very extremely strong men who seriously considers the viewpoints of his co-workers and who actually encourages people to challenge his opinions. And he never fears to be radical when radicalism is needed -- which it is in the cause of restoring the real uninfringed right to keep and bear arms.

It's just that Aaron and I have completely different working styles. He's big on multi-tasking, rush work, a driving sense of urgency, and lots of constant coordinating. Been there, done that through many years in corporate communications. I hated it then and am through with it now. My way, increasingly, is to focus intensely on one project at a time, uninterrupted, and in my own time.

Can you see a tad bit of potential for conflict there? ;-) Still, we did a lot of good years and a lot of good work.
