If there is any justice at the Reader you will honor the great literary contribution that Liz Armstrong has made to your paper these last several months (please reassure me that it hasn't been years) by leaving the page her column normally appears on blank. This will remind those who did read her musings on the shallow, deceitful, high-school-level double dare that was her life (with attention-grabbing dips into the more adult depths of drugs and prostitution!) that she has left our lake-lapped shores for some other city and will be heard from no more (I hope I hope I hope). And for those of us who have previously owned pets who peed on our belongings just to get attention, we will continue to avoid paying attention to anything that splashes over that part of the paper anyway.
