Everything @DanBarryNYT does is memorable, but somehow this feels like even more: an elegy for the last 17 months, as heroism and valiant effort post up against the unknown.

Dozens of @nytimes colleagues are gathering now to say goodbye to my friend, the irreplaceable @jswatz. He’s off to teach journalism at the @UTAustin. He better invite me.

And while I'm at it. Apologies to both @jswatz AND @jswartz. Here. Read this lovely piece by my pal @jswatz. I'm out.

A love story about a couple's trip to Texas from New Jersey - in a 2008 Smart car. By @jswartz, beloved colleague and commuting partner, who is leaving @nytimes and @NJTransit to teach at @utaustin, which is so very lucky to have him.

Let me do this again: It's been a long, joyful ride for @jswatz, but also for his readers and his colleagues, who wish him only the best - but who will dearly miss him, my typos notwithstanding:

@DanBarryNYT @Parinlalala This was a fantastic article that read like a thriller with a great NYC voice and, thankfully, a happy ending. I love the Metro section!

This moving @DanBarryNYT piece is filled with telling details and indelible moments. This one stood out to me: “Just two weeks ago, Betsy and Axel danced for hours at a wedding. “Honey?” she calls out.”

"Officer Graham who takes the lead. She is in a zone, she has confidence in her abilities — and this is her guy. Axel is her guy, and there is no pulse." Oh, the beauty of this piece, and how much @DanBarryNYT says with so few words.
