This is my final issue as editor. I'm off to the Sunshine State (where it's actually cloudier than Arizona) to edit a newspaper there.
The new TW editor, Jimmy Boegle, is on board (check out his Chow review in this issue). I'm pleased to report the paper is in good hands. I wish him the best.
I dislike good-byes, so I'm not going to belabor this one. I've been in Southern Arizona awhile, so there are pangs of regret upon leaving. But the lure of a new place is a powerful one for me, and I look forward to the adventure.
I'll have mixed emotions as I drive out of town but as I look in the rear-view mirror there's one thing I certainly won't miss--Tucson traffic. I'll try to remember that as I cross those lonely stretches of West Texas on I-10.
