- Second Half fans, who have dubbed themselves “Hannaholics,” are reacting by canceling their subscriptions, sending letters of protest, and telling their favorite columnist that Second Half was the one bright spot in the midst of today’s grim news.
In the words of one reader, “it was like getting a letter from a friend every week.”
Another ardent fan writes, “I just picked up my S.M. Times and read with horror that it was your last column. I have been thinking about cancelling my subscription and that is the nail in the coffin. I will let them know this, too. Are you writing for any other newspaper? I will subscribe to whichever one it is! Your columns are the highlight of my days on Wed and Fri. I come home from work and rush to get the paper and you always brighten my days.”
Hanna is looking for another outlet for “Second Half” and is confident that her thousands of readers will continue to follow her adventures.
