We're sorry to notify readers that longtime City writer Jack BradiganSpula is no longer on our staff.
As readers know, Jack has great strengths, and he has made important contributions to this newspaper. His broad breadth and depth of knowledge and his coverage of such issues as the environment, human rights, and national and international affairs have informed and challenged us all. He has a knack for connecting the dots on crucial issues and --- especially important at this time, in this country --- of putting local issues in the context of national developments and trends.
