Due to budget cuts, the Monterey Herald no longer publishes my quotation quiz. So my nine-year, 476 weekly column run is over at the Herald. Unless I find a new publication home for the quotation quiz, I’m not planning new quizzes. In the meantime, please enjoy the hundreds of previous quizzes, and I greatly thank those who read this website.
BUT WAIT! Looking to the future, plans are in the works for a “What’s Your Quotation Quotient?” podcast sometime in the early part of 2023. Thank you for your patience. This quiz will rise again!

Arlen . . . Heartbreaking!!!! Your “Quotation Quotient” was one of the few interesting things the Herald published . . . I thoroughly enjoyed it every time. I’m on your email list so, if you establish a new venue, let me know.
Stopped my subscription to the Herald over a year ago . . . now I’m elated that I did!

Thank you, Shell! I very much appreciate your kind words and will surely let you know if the QQ is revived.
So sorry to hear. (No wonder I couldn’t find it on the Herald website today) I always looked forward to your column every Sunday. I hope you find a new home soon! Actually I’ve found that the quality of the paper has gone downhill since the ownership change.or whatever happened a couple of years ago (or whenever it was).
Enjoy the summer and happy travels!
Best Regards, Darrell Y
Thank you for your kind words, Darrell! I agree with your thoughts about the Herald, and unfortunately, it applies to the newspaper business in general. Have a great summer yourself.
Time to drop my subscription. Dumbing down of the paper.
Thank you for the fun & joy you’ve given us. The quiz has been the best part of the Sunday Herald and had become a Sunday evening ritual for us: libations and the qqcontest. We will miss your wit, Arlen. A great loss for the paper. We hope the powers that be recognize this. Good travels to you!
