Dan Neil Speaks to Zell in His Own Language

3830.jpgAuto columnist for LAT Dan Neil is hitting the road and taking a gig at the Wall Street Journal.

And Neil had some words, er word for Sam Zell his infamous now former potty-mouthed boss:

It was the beginning of the most wonderful professional experience of my life, the most fun, the most satisfying, the most intellectually challenging. This placed saved me. It made me.

It’s been a rough few years here, mainly because of the jackasses in Chicago who own us. To them I say, with as much gusto as I can muster in an email, fuck you.

On a happier note, there’s not a person in this building I do not like, if not love. The paper has more greatness ahead of it, and I’ll be watching from the east coast and rooting you on.

Hat tip Romenesko and LAObserved.
