Thank you, Jesus Sanchez, and farewell
With so many good people leaving the paper, it seems unfair to single anyone out. But readers of this blog have come to know Jesus Sanchez, to seek him out for his sly and dry wit, his knowledge of the city where he was born, and his uncanny ability to find and tell the quietly great story. It would be wrong to have his photo vanish from this page without letting you know Jesus has been laid off.
Here's the start of a little tribute to all the journalists departing this place. It sprang up this morning, a note and a few flowers left in a hallway where framed displays celebrating past Pulitzer wins welcome visitors to the newsroom.
