I would like to dedicate this installment of Currently Hanging to Amy Kate Horn, whose last day at the paper is today.
My bike was stolen earlier this week (yes, it was locked). That really, really sucked. But Amy Kate’s departure is worse. Amy Kate’s departure makes me feel like doing what the above image depicts.
When Amy Kate announced she was leaving a while back, I said, “I hate it.” I’m wearing black today.
I probably don’t have to tell you, Slog, but Amy Kate is an emotional center for this paper. (And, as you might not know, for me.) She’s calm, reasonable, and organized. When something goes wrong, she fixes it. She actually fixes it! I don’t know if you’ve met her, but there is something deeply reassuring about this woman.
I will truly, madly, deeply miss her.
