All Hands --
After more than 40 years at the WSJ, I have decided to retire. My final column will be April 15, Tax Day. I leave with enormous respect and affection for the best team in journalism.
As a friend once said, it's not what you do but who you do it with. On that score, I am truly blessed. I will deeply miss all the warmth, camaraderie, wise counsel and group therapy. I will also miss working with terrific editors who consistently manage to make me look better in print each week than I had thought possible.
I plan to continue teaching and writing occasionally. I hope you will stay in touch. You can reach me through my WSJ address (firstname.lastname@example.org) or home (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org).
Highest regards and best wishes,
Tom Herman Senior Special Writer The Wall Street Journal 200 Liberty Street New York City, New York 10281 Phone: 212-xxxx-xxxx Email: email@example.com
