This week is my last as editor of Vox. As I hand over the reins to the current deputy editor, Amanda Dahling, I find myself feeling wistful. I’ll miss the conversations about new things happening in Columbia and brainstorming story ideas. I’ll even miss the heated discussions about errant commas.
Even though I won’t be on staff anymore, Vox will still be part of my life. I’ll turn to the publication when I’m looking for great feature articles such as this week’s “In the land of drought and honey." Although corn and livestock often come to mind when thinking about the drought’s effects on crops, this story centers on something smaller and more easily overlooked: bees.
I’ll still look forward to reading stories about activities to try, such as this week’s “Cool runnings” about mid-Missouri fun runs. I have an on-again, off-again relationship with running, so the story might be the kick in the Spandex I need to hit the trails.
I love reading books before bed or while waiting at the doctor’s office, so I’ll keep turning to Vox’s books pages to learn about new releases. Spend some time with our review of Paterno to see if you should add it to your own reading list.
And Vox’s movie and restaurant coverage is the best in town, so the bookmark on my laptop will still get plenty of use. I often refer to voxmagazine.com to find out if that new movie is worth seeing or to find restaurants that are open late. Check out our “seriously detailed” dining guide online, and keep an eye out for more movie reviews in the coming weeks.
Vox will still be important to me. Now I just know a little more about how it’s made.
