Thank you, Everyone

For some more than kind words about me, check out this post by Turdpolisher.

It's true, I have dropped the Deuce after spending nearly 6.5 years roaming the marbled hallways, mostly because I was lost. That place can be a maze!

It is with some sadness that I take my leave, because I believe the news dept. there has a chance of getting back on top in the ratings. The competition's grip is slipping, beginning with splitting up an anchor team that has dominated for decades.

Some of the recent hires at Channel 2 have the potential to take them to the top. The city also has great potential, and if it gets its act together, I may return in a few years.

I'd like to say thank you to all the great people I'm leaving behind. Many of you have taught me how to be a better journalist, while others have just been there for me and my family in our time of need. If I took the time to name names, I'd leave someone out, so I'll just say that if we talked at length, you were someone special.

Thank you all for a great ride.

Best of luck to you, the wife and the baby, Mike. You will be sorely missed, not just for your shooting skills, but for the easygoing demeanor that made you a friend to everyone in the newsroom day after day.

Sorry I wasn't able to make it to the going-away shin-dig, but being a nightsider pitted against a nighttime party, what's one to do? Regardless, the sentiment's the same: it's been a pleasure, an honor and a privilege.

I had hoped to get you my info. so that we could stay in touch, but no such luck. Let me know if there's a best way to reach you via my 'BRZ e-mail. Thanks.

All the best Mike. Enjoy the next few weeks with nothing to do, then jump back on that horse and ride it Houston style...the job-hunt, not the missus.

Mike, you are a good photographer and a good friend. The B.R.'s lost is H-Town's gain. There will always be a seat for you at the comittee meetings, did you know?
