I don't know if you will read this, John. I first met you in 1988 or so in San Diego, in a not-so-pleasant time in my life. You were a good fellow at the time, and became a wise and valued friend---something of a metaphorical "older brother." After I moved away in 1995, we spoke less and less, and things became more and more challenging for you. But I have always appreciated and valued your friendship.
So I will miss seeing your columns. I haven't heard from you in at least two years, but I well remember the fun stories and entertaining escapades we shared. So I wanted to say that I---and a lot of people---wish you well.
And I hope that you will drop me a line sometime. Thanks for the writing, the fellowship, and the friendship, even from a couple of thousand miles away.

Words escape me.

As a 24-year employee of HD, I am torn as to whether to have a discussion with you about HD or not. I do agree with your last paragraph, at least until the last sentence. HD is doing things right for the shareholder, but not the HD employee. The Wal-Martization of HD continues. And it sucks.
That judgement day crap is so ridiculous and stupid. Can't you just grow up and read big boy books?
