Well, so much for unique, compelling, LOCAL content that you can’t get from any other source……

Congratulations, Jim. After 23 years in Virginia, it’ll be an adjustment. The Sun-Herald is a big winner in this deal. Best of luck.

In this era of editorial cartoonists having no place to jump to among newspapers, it’s rather gratifying to see that Jim is able to do just that.
