The Bye Out
Today is a momentous day for me. I know it's trite, but today is truly the first day of the rest of my life. Why? Yesterday, after 25 years at The Washington Post, I retired. Well, sort of. This blog will continue.
I'm taking advantage of an attractive early retirement/buy-out offer that the Post has offered scores of longtime newsroom employees. Nearly 70 people accepted (see the story by Frank Ahrens). It was a tough decision, because I loved my job at the newspaper. I love ferreting out misdoings and helping others steer clear of financial traps and misdeeds. And I love sharing my thoughts on this blog as well as the comments I get back (well most of the comments).
Yet, I'm very excited about trying something new--even though what that will be remains a big question mark. But as I try to sort that out, I'm going to keep writing this blog, although perhaps a little less often as I use my "free" time to travel, relax a little and just think (hopefully all nice thoughts).
I'd love to hear from you--your thoughts, ideas, suggestions for items. I'll continue to report on your questions and problems--and post them here. So please write me--early and often--at this new e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks to all you loyal readers--please keep reading and commenting!
