On Sunday, February 3rd, Tom Ferrick, Jr., wrote his last column for the Inquirer. I have been a fan of Mr. Ferrick since he began writing his column in 1998 (info taken from Wikipedia). The quality of his writing stayed high to the end. In January he wrote an excellent series on the lack of diversity of the city's unions. There was no announcement as to his plans or whether his relationship with the paper would continue. Mr. J, also a fan, and I wish him well in his future endeavors whatever they may be.
