We’ve never met except through the pages of IBJ. I read with regret tinged with understanding your last column [Time for curtain to drop on quarter-century run, Dec. 6]. Thank you for all the columns you have written. I’m sure there are ones with which I disagreed, but I am so appreciative of your support of equal opportunities for all, your straight talk on racism and discrimination, for your sensible approach to issues of gay marriage and abortion and all those sticky, scary topics which divide us, especially in Indiana. It helps that you often take the high road (in my opinion) with a sense of humor, which lets the light in and the hot air out.
I will miss your voice. I hope you have many years of adventures and fun ahead of you!
