93 and Not Dead Yet: The End 

by Reg Green (January 2023)

New England Editor
, Thomas Hart Benton, 1946


Having known many journalists who, refreshing when young, became bores as they recycled stories, repeated jokes and revived stale news, I was determined to quit as soon as I felt the cold wind that comes with too much exposure. Readers with good memories and an eye for human weakness may remember that I announced a year ago that I thought that time had arrived. In the end, however, vanity won and I continued. But now it’s time. This will be the last “93 And Not Dead Yet.” Thank you for reading it

“94 And Not Dead Yet” will start next month. If that turns out to be too ambitious, a replacement is waiting in the wings. It is called “94 And Dead.”

  1. Hmm. As anyone who follows the politics around the Ukraine war knows, Mr. Kissinger is still giving foreign policy advice — at the age of 99. That this advice is not necessarily appreciated by the Ukrainians (it isn’t, and I see why, BTW) is no argument that the powers of mind at such age are necessarily weak. The third sentence from the last in your announcement constitutes an excellent New Year’s resolution. Please stick to it — and have a happy and healthy New Year! May it bring peace — and on Mr. Zelensky, not Mr. Kissinger’s terms, too! And more “OUCH!es” and “not dead yet”s from you Mr. Green!

  2. Reg Green… Go for your hundred….May the inspiration continue to flow, together with the.
    wisdom of experience ..
