Hi everyone, Steve here with my last message for the Red Ribbon Reviewers blog. When I began this two years ago, I was amazed at the response. I feel bad that last year wasn’t nearly as huge. That was my fault. Sorry guys. This year, I have even less time and more personal issues to deal with so I didn’t even get the ball rolling on this one. I was hoping that someone was going to take over months ago but that kind of fell through for the same reasons I can’t really handle this responsibility anymore. After all, I retired almost 2 years ago from the video making scene, I don’t have a lot of the connections anymore and to come in now with this when there’s a whole new generation of reviewers, well Larry Kramer I am not nor could I pretend to be.
But you know what? This isn’t dead because someone contacted me tonight and is serious about taking the project over and, yes, has the contacts to make it go on. Your hero and mine, ladies, gentlemen and either/neither, The Cartoon Hero is taking over!
No, I am not playing the Bonnie Tyler song.
But I do want to thank all of you who were involved and I want to thank those of you who want to stay involved and those of you just coming into this. If you have the time, I encourage you to volunteer with your local HIV/AIDS charitable organizations, learn about risks and talk to your partners about it.
