Seeking advice

    Hello all. I need some advice. Recently I took a job but before I left the editor and publisher at my old stomping grounds asked if I had any recommendations on how the sports section should be after my departure. I told them my ideas, but since leaving I have noticed that they are not following what I had mentioned to them. The new guy is completely wrecking things.
    Here's my questions, should I even care, and secondly, should I fire off an e-mail both to the new guy and to the editor and publisher?

    It ain't your business anymore.

    Nope. It's like selling your house. The new owner can do whatever he wants. You left, it isn't your issue.

    It's their problem.
    I'm a finalist (I hope) for an SE job, where the former SE is retiring.
    I suggested that he write a 2-3 times per week sports column, which I hope he does (whether I'm there or not).
    But he says he has no interest in knowing what goes on, and why.
    I like that attitude.
    As difficult as it is to accept, the paper will get by without you.
    Make your new assignment better.

    I agree with the above sentiments.

    Keep it in the rear-view mirror.

    Second that. You've done your part, now it's out of your hands. You can't do anymore.
