Just a short note to acknowledge all of you who have shared experiences with me here at ABC News. I will retire from ABC the end of this month and will relocate to the west coast in the near future. Thanks for the efforts you have put forth and the kindness and intelligence you have shown me. It is a little weird saying goodbye after all these years…reminds me a little bit of that old “Dead” verse…”what a long strange trip it’s been.” Good Luck to you all.
