It’s never good when an employee walks into your office holding a piece of paper and closes the door.
Yup, that sheet of paper was a resignation letter.Managing Editor Joe St.Arney gave notice that his last day at NJBIZ will be Jan. 4 so he can become projects editor at The Real Deal. There are many reasons why this sucks, but let’s just go with four for now:
--I’ll no longer laugh out loud while editing his Winners/Losers/Face Time.
--NJBIZ Power lists won’t be half as fun anymore…to compile, or to read.
--We’ll have headlines like, “This is a story about….”
--I’ll have to write the editorials.
A real loss of the real deal.
