Editor, Thanks a lot for printing most of my letters over the years and withholding the ones that would have gotten me arrested. I am preparing to move north to New York City and will sorely miss all the reasons I chose to write those letters while I lived here. I’m not sure the New York Times is going to print my thoughts, but I’ll still send them my ramblings when I feel it is needed.
I am being replaced by non-union workers and was given a choice to join them or retire or move to NYC to complete my career. It’s time to move on. My children are grown and able to navigate the world on their own, and I like to travel.
