I spend my day collecting quotes. I also spend my day in a room full of creative and witty people. That results in many interesting quips.

Today I handed in my resignation from the Peninsula Daily News. It has been four years since I started and will be about 4 1/2 by the time I’m gone. My last official day will be May 20.
