My time to move on

Back in 2000, after Susan Luce offered me a job at The News & Observer, I literally jumped up and down.

I was proud to work there.

But this month I took a buyout.

You might have seen the farewell page (PDF) we made for ourselves, posted by Romenesko. And kind words from Buregetta Wheeler.

The decimation of good newspapers is a shame.

I wish everyone well — journalists and our colleagues in other parts of the papers, those who have left and those who carry on.

Fellow McClatchy employees (current and former), I invite you to an alumni group at Linked In.

I will probably move to Albuquerque, to spend more time with my father.

Comic news

This is a smart idea, found via Poynter.

The Santa Cruz Comic News is a monthly journal of progressive editorial cartoons. Each issue features well over 100 cartoons from the nation’s leading political cartoonists. The Comic News is the granddaddy of all cartoon newspapers — established 1984. Publishers: Thom Zajac and John Govsky.

“Our online edition features weekly updates of the best progressive editorial cartoons in the nation. Our website also has an archive of thousands of progressive editorial cartoons going back to 2005.”
