Good Work, Sir.
I've been shamefully remiss in noting the promotion of one of our members to a very important position. If you missed the Unisys message the other day, I'm very happy to share the news that Kevin Modesti has taken a job as LANG Sports Editor, which will give him the challenging task of coordinating coverage of the Lakers, Dodgers, Angels, Clippers, UCLA, USC and just about every other sport in SoCal.
It's hard to think of a better man for the job. Not only does Kevin's expertise in local sports date back to his days with the Herald-Examiner, he combines both clear, elegant writing with an easy-going, level-headed persona. He's also been a loyal supporter of the union in his time as a member and has worked hard to keep our Sports section excellent through a challenging few years. This will not be an easy job, but he's definitely up to the challenge.
So thanks for all the good things you've done so far, Kevin, and best of luck to you in your new role. It's always hard to lose a good guy like you from our ranks, but it's even better to see them go on to bigger, more important things. Congratulations all around.
