    • It was mentioned in the 11/4 morning update today that Ed has updated his LinkedIn to indicate having left the clinic. As a gossip hound, I’ve spoke to some folks who’ve painted Eds day on 10/25 looking something like this: 10/25am-meet ccf board and get fired by Tom, security waiting at his office to escort him and his box of belongings off prem. I wish him the best and I hope his health wasn’t a factor in leaving. Can’t wait to see what he reinvents himself as for the next go round, maybe a Triathlon on Mars is in the cards.
