I’m not a car guy. But I look forward to getting the paper on Saturdays for Dan Neil’s columns.
I can’t think of a better compliment for someone who makes a living at the keyboard. I don’t really care what he writes about, I just want to read his writing. He’s that good.
UPDATE on 2/12/10:
Neil has departed the Tribune-owned L.A. Times for the Wall St. Journal. Here is the note he left for his colleagues. It’s also a good example of why I’m a fan.
