An expression of gratitude in a farewell to newspapering

Just in case you’re out of touch with that feeling of gratitude we often have (or should have) in journalism for having a front seat as history is being made, hearing people’s stories, discovering the important truths: a longtime reporter with the Times-Picayune talks about his career and leaving it in this piece posted on Romensko.

I’m old enough to really feel this one in my gut (and, yes, I will admit it choked me up), but I hope you’ll appreciate it, too, and think of it again in those down moments when you’re wondering what the hell you’re doing, why no one is calling you back, and what the point of all this effort is.
