    Best of luck. A lot of us will be making similar journeys very, very soon...

    Thanks for posting.
  2. Sad to see you go, Michelle.

    I sat in on your workshop at Poynter earlier this year, and thought it was excellent. I hope you stay connected to journalism in some way.

    Or already have. I suspect the ratio of former journalists to current journalists around here is surprisingly even these days.

    Beautifully written, Michelle. Best of luck.

    Great column, Michelle. Thanks from many of us for being at the Poynter Sports Summits the past couple of years. Good luck with everything.

    But I'm sure interns and 22-year-olds just looking for something to do until they figure out what they really want to do will fill the void.

    Best of luck, Michelle.

    That was a hell of a piece, under difficult circumstances. It's a gut-wrenching time, best of luck to you.

    Great essay, Michelle. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Too bad we only had that one opportunity to work together. Keep in touch and Godspeed.

    I look forward to reading the journey, if you get it published.
