Jon Carroll Retires -- November 21, 2015

Jon Carroll has retired after 35 years as a columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle.  I have been reading Chronicle columnists since I learned to read.  I always read Herb Caen and John McCabe, and usually read Stanton Delaplane and Art Hoppe.  I didn't read every one of Jon Carroll's columns, but I read most of them, especially the cat columns.  I hope he has a happy retirement from the five a week grind.  At least the Chronicle still has Mick LaSalle, Leah Garchick and Ben Fong-Torres. 

Updated later:  I forgot to mention Mondegreens.  As soon as Jon Carroll wrote about them, I knew what he meant.  I thought I was the only person who misheard song lyrics.
