Add me to the list of goodbyes
I just found out I'm among the newest round of layoffs here at the L.A. Times and I wanted to say goodbye.
When I started this blog last February, we were ranked 8-millionth in the vast Wild West that is the blogosphere. Today, we're in the top 5,000. We get tens of thousands of hits a day, scores of comments, and get to share what we know about Southern California with the rest of the world. It was hard work and great fun and I loved every minute of it.
Here's a photo of the Sunday sunrise in Malibu, the day Tony Hillerman, one of my journalism teachers, passed away. The sorrow of that loss blends into the grief of this one. I'll miss him, and all of you, very much.
