I've been missing Shepherd for a long time. He's the symbol of an America long-gone, because we didn't care enough about it. I don't think it went by attrition. My father turned me on to Shep when I was nine, growing up in Nutley New Jersey. He workeed for the Jersey Journal in Jersey City.
I left the US when I was 18 and found a good life in Canada. Still go back every summer to fish for salmon but life is even better in Thailand.
Thank you for bringing back the magic for me. You should consider listing Weird NJ which has had several articles on Shepherd
