LIFE OUT HERE: The best worst day ever

VALENCIA, Spain — My world was obliterated.

My boss called me in for what I thought was going to be an annual evaluation. It turned out to be a firing. I was done, he said, as the editor of this newspaper. He did offer me a job as a writer, as long as I worked away from the office. He already had hired a replacement and didn’t want the trouble he believed my being around might bring.
