Today is the 12th anniversary of my departure from The Indianapolis Star and Gannett newspapers.

I don’t miss it one bit.

I quit/took early retirement after my mother died and left me a modest golden parachute.

Gannett had bought The Star a few months earlier and was systematically sucking the last bit of fun out of newspapering in Indianapolis.

Nearly all of my friends and colleagues have since quit or been laid off as Gannett’s suicidal economy measures make a once great paper irrelevant.
