I’ve known for a few days that Pete Kennedy is ending his column for the Waukesha Freeman. I’m sorry to his column go.
Pete has been very encouraging during my time writing for the Waukesha Freeman. He regularly sends me notes telling me he liked this column or that one. We exchanged information, and I even bounced a few ideas around with him before putting it into column form. I suspect I’ll continue to pester Pete until he no longer has time to return my e-mails.
We have not always agreed, but we certainly have kept any disagreement friendly, something I’ve always appreciated. I even had to forgive him for quoting me accurately.
I find him a very smart and entertaining writer who set the bar pretty high for the rest of us. I’m going to miss reading his column every weekend.
