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.
