This morning I received an email from Gary West,
Well, apparently we still live in the age of miracles. Frankly, I was sure I was going to be part of the reduction, but I just got off the phone with [my editor] and she tells me I still have a job. I'm shocked, but, of course, very pleased.
And others are very pleased: Lone Star Park, TexasHORSE, various horsemen, the teeming millions who read his columns, etc.
So, at this writing, I can continue to enjoy his horse racing columns of lumpen management, flapdoodle, intriguing races, remarkable horses, and colorful characters.
