Who knew my resignation would get such play? LAObserved, Reporter-G and FCBlog blogged about my soon-to-be departure. Effective July 22, I will be preparing to travel to Guatemala and then return to my native New York. I will stay in journalism as long as I can. Journalism, in some form, will survive, though the next few years will be rough. As for the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, Frank Girardot will be taking over my duties. All kidding aside, I thank everyone I have worked with and learned from (including – ack – local bloggers). I am a better journalist today because of you. As for this blog, it will most likely end. Because we now have a slew of blogs that have helped our Web site flourish. Once again thanks.
