Thank Yous And Farewell to My Favorite Columnists


--by gardengal10, posted Jul 18, 2021
Our big-city newspaper was purchased by a hedge fund. Over 40 employees have accepted a buy-out. Some wrote their last columns in Sunday's paper.

They will still have their work email addresses until this Friday.

Earlier today, I sent three of my favorite columnists "farewell and thank you" notes. They have enriched my life, written about topics that have caused me to think, provided a smile, and more. I will miss them.
