Summit Up April 21 disappoints fan who wants a resurrection

I am a disappointed Summit Up fan. I tell myself when I return to the column after a necessary healing time from my last disappointment, “This is not my Summit Up. You’ll just be disappointed.”

I return, though. Why? The memory of my last lackluster Summit Up experiences is not nearly as powerful as my hope that I will again know the joy I once knew from a good daily Summit Up.

I realize that my hope was born from a great, witty, wonderfulness that was my Summit Up of yesterday.

The effortless talent that poured from the pages into my head was, I realize now, taken for granted. I’m left a lonely man pining for a lost love. The Summit Up of April 21 is an aging sitcom with forced sentiment and last-born humor.

During this time of many Easters and nations reborn, I have a hope of resurrection. Bring Summit Up from a dull and ailing mediocrity. Tell your bravest to go forth and fetch the Holy Grail so that Summit Up may drink and understand that he and the fans are one. It is my wish. Have a nice day.
