JUST FOUR MORE COLUMNS TO GO. October 26th will be my last Diario column. No, I will not retire, I will transition to an online column, possibly with daily entries. I believe I have been writing columns for the past 23 years, and it was a lot of fun! So four more columns to go, then you have to look me up on the internet.
