Chron runs a very smart quote

Thanks to the Chronicle‘s Kristen Mack for a nod to our own Kevin Whited:

County Judge Robert Eckels, drawing some heat for his decision to leave office just months after voters gave him a fourth term, offered no apologies Friday, and he noted that he had to file for re-election more than a year ago.

New opportunities since then, and introspection as he approached age 50, convinced him — as he said in announcing his departure Thursday — that “the time is now.”

Generally conservative Web site’s response to that quote was typical of critical sentiment. “Actually, no. The time would have been right before the last election, so voters could have picked your replacement,” wrote BlogHouston’s Kevin Whited. “Thanks for your years of service and solid conservative governance, but jeers for the way you decided to quit.”

Kevin does have a knack for putting a nice finishing touch on an issue, something I appreciate as a reader.
