Paul Moyer leaves Paul Moyer style


The pot and the kettle...

In my old neighborhood, which used to be the old KABC neighborhood, they still tell a story at the Rustic about how the Rustic ran out of the vodka Paul Moyer was drinking one night.

So he walked over to Liquor Mart, bought his brand, gave it to Myrtle to put behind the counter, took his barstool, and paid for a few more shots.

No. It doesn't surprise me that Paul Moyer is leaving without seeking fanfare. That's the way it's done. If you have more than two friends in town when you leave, you're not a journalist, you're a publicist.
