Throughout my two years at the Alligator, I have been the punchline of joke after joke about my age. Some of you knew why I was such an old bastard. Some didn’t. But none of you ever treated me differently because of it. Everyone — there’s too many to name — at this paper has touched me in a way I will never forget. Finally, there’s not any questions. Finally, I feel at peace with where I am in life. And finally, I have a meaning of family I know I can believe in.

Matt Watts' tremendous farewell in The Alligator is a reminder that we all stick together for some very good reasons from time to time.
