I am bidding a fond and grateful farewell to the Minnesota Monitor team. After taking the rest of the year off from reporting and writing, ericblackink will become part of MinnPost.com. I would like to thank my Monitor colleagues and the Monitor's parent organization, the Center for Independent Media, for their help and support over the past six months and also the MinnMon readers for whatever time and attention you donated to my scribbling. Thanks be unto you all, and please accept my personal wishes for a great 2008.
Asked to comment, Black replied: "What are you talking about? I don't give quotes. I get quotes. But I am excited to become part of MinnPost's thoughtful approach to news. Happy New Year everyone. See you in 2008."
Here at Lloydletta's Nooz, we wish Eric Black the best in his new endeavors.
