Post to the Host:
Has the series, "Ruth Harrison, Reference Librarian," been discontinued? I have not heard it in quite awhile, nor could I locate any scripts for it in the archives for 2008.
We haven't done Ruth in a long time, that's for sure, but "discontinued"? That suggests that there was a meeting around a table and a discussion of Ruth, the pros and cons, and a consensus reached, and a memo issued: "TO: All PHC personnel, in re: Ruth Harrison. This will inform you that as of Tuesday she has been discontinued." And we don't hold those meetings. So it may be that Ruth is on leave, or just snoozing. Or disappeared while shopping. Or went to Tucson to visit her friend Kathy. But not discontinued.
