First: Some of you may be aware that when people used to ask when I was coming back to Community, I'd say when Michael wasn't in charge anymore? Well, I went ahead and agreed to come back /anyway/, in the end, because newBrian assured me Michael would not be a problem. Turns out he was right: Michael doesn't run Community anymore. Could that be any more karmically timed?
Second: I found out this morning that, as of EOD yesterday, oldBrian doesn't work here anymore. There has been much speculation today as to whether he got fed up and quit or was asked to leave or what. I'll have to email him and ask. I can't say I'm /surprised/, at all. Merely shocked. It was unexpected. Sad.
