“Newspaper people are the best people”.
I’ll write something deeply profound and interesting about the Meejah and my friends and colleagues at another juncture, but suffice to say our editor-in-chief summed it up well when he told me this the other week. And last night he told us that more than 1000 years of experience was walking out the door. He counted. Imagine the loss.
In any case I am bruised and bloodied, bowed but yet unbent. Drinking with journos on such a sad occasion (or any, really) is a health hazard. But then again, they ARE the best people.
Have this. It’s basically awesome and true.
