I wrote this post for Friday the 13th a couple of years ago, but it applies still.

PERSONAL NOTE: It is exactly 27 years ago today that I cleaned out my desk at Reuters and quit after working there for 20 years. I won’t go into the whys, they are no longer relevant.

I retired from there in October of 2000.

I have been writing this blog since March of 2010.
