Sad News: Jonathan Clement’s LAST Column for the Wall Street Journal

By JLP | April 9, 2008

My Wednesday morning ritual is coming to an end. Every Wednesday for the past 11 or years, I have made it a point to check out what Jonathan Clements had to say in his Getting Going column. I opened today’s paper to find out that this morning’s column titled, Parting Shot: What I Learned From Writing 1,008 Columns (free) will be his last.

Over the years I have grown to like and respect Jonathan for his honesty. I even interviewed him a couple years ago (Part 1 and Part 2). No, I didn’t always agree with what he had to say, but for the most part I thought he was right on the money.

Jonathan didn’t mention in his column why he’s leaving the Wall Street Journal. Whatever it is, I wish him the best. Now I’ll have to come up with a different Wednesday morning ritual.

    JLP, I am also a dedicated Jonathan Clements reader — both his Wednesday and Sunday columns. In his article last Sunday, he mentions what he’s going to be doing next.

    Without Johnathon Clements I may never have had my personal finance book published 12 years ago. Title is “Wealth On Minimal Wage”
