Could you put up a note on the home page about my schedule? Ever since you mentioned in your appeal that I am moving to PA , I have had dozens of e-mails asking me if I will still be writing. I don`t have the time to respond to them all. I suggest something like this:"Joe Guzzardi`s regular VDARE.COM column will resume on August 1st. For the next two weeks, he will be relocating from California to Pennsylvania. His weekly column, `View from Lodi` will also begin again in August and will remain a regular feature, the topic of which frequently will be Joe`s reflections on life in California."
Joe is a third-generation Californian
. We wish Joe well in Pennsylvania, but his relocation is of course part of a larger tragedy - the reversal of Americans` historic westward movement under the impact of mass non-traditional immigration, something which was becoming clear in the census data when I wrote Alien Nation
in 1995, and which has even driven the Roy Rogers Museum to Missouri
."Go West, young man"
, Horace Greeley is supposed to have said
after the Civil War, "and grow up with the country"
. But now Joe Guzzard is going East because the country is being murdered.
