Dave Barry Hangs It Up For Good.
His sabbatical is now permanent:
E&P: With your sabbatical nearing a year, do you have any idea yet whether or not you will resume your column at some point?
Barry: I'm not going to resume my regular weekly column. I'll continue to write occasional columns for the Herald, as I did this year. I'll also continue to do the holiday gift guide, and the year in review. And I'll keep blogging. But not the weekly column.
E&P: If you might resume it, when would be the earliest that would happen?
Barry: Several weeks after my death.
