I hope these things don't run in threes

Every year, the Dallas-Fort Worth Theater Critics Forum,  a group of stage critics (including me) who cover North Texas theater, get together in early September on a Saturday to meet and bestow our awards on the best of the past season. (You can see the list on the critics’ Facebook page and on here.)

Two years ago, the meeting  ended up being the last official act of Forum member and Dallas Morning News writer Manny Mendoza — he left the paper that week. Now lightning strikes twice: Gay Fort Worth Star-Telegram theater critic Mark Lowry has taken the paper’s buyout; his last day at the paper will be Sept. 19. 

I like to think being a Forum member has nothing to do with leaving your newspaper. At least, I’m hoping.
