Latts and Atts: Something Happened

This just in from Bob Bitchin:

"As many of you know, we sold Latitudes & Attitudes last January, and as part of the sales agreement, we were to work as consultants. Recently, we discovered things were not as they should be. Last week we found out that the July issue did not print, although advertisers had been billed. This morning, the offices were locked with the following sign on the door: "Offices Closed Until Further Notice."

Jody & I put our lives into the magazine, TV show, events and lifestyle for over 15 years. It is with very heavy hearts that we have to make this announcement."

Wow. Such an open mind. Consistent with previous posts, though. Gotta appreciate consistency.

Re: Latts and Atts: Something happened

Even the website is offline. It pops up brief message, and asks for your email to update in the future.

Too bad. Sorry for the loss.
