More Sun cuts - say goodbye to Neil Waugh

I was very saddened today to learn that my former colleague Neil Waugh was cut by the Sun today after a long career there. Neil and I worked together for 10 years at the Sun (including a span where I his editor), and while was an old grump at times, he was our old grump, dammit, and we loved him for it.

Seriously ... beneath his tough exterior, Neil was a great guy to know. He had a steel trap memory for the goings-on in provincial politics, and loved his role as the irascible outsider looking in.

The shocked faces in the press gallery today said it all - he was well loved by his co-workers and colleagues in the media and at the Legislature and he'll be missed. An era has ended at the Alberta Legislature.

A big loss in my opinion. Mr Waugh was always a good read. He was one of the few Sun employees who ever had a good word to say about the "hoodie army" and who acknowledged our contributions and our struggles.

I can't believe Yukon Jackass draws a paycheck from the Sun while a truly talented man is unemployed.
