Ron & Sandeep K-I-S-S-I-N-G
After 3 years, brainiac Sandeep “Beam on the Rocks” Kaushik is leaving the Stranger for a job in King County Executive Ron Sims’ office where he is expected to resuscitate Ron “I promoted Julie Anne Kempf & Hired Dean Logan Too” Sims. Good luck with that, Sandeep. I’m not sure if even a one-man political think tank such as yourself will be able to pull it off. We’ll miss you. However, I’m sure Microsoft is relieved that you’re giving up on your true calling here at the Stranger. Here’s your going away card.
