Tom Christie moves on from LA Weekly

Christie, the senior features editor, was (I believe) the last of the pre-New Times mainstay editors still with the LA Weekly. His farewell message:

From: Tom Christie
Sent: Wednesday, November 17, 2010 7:18 PM
Subject: Auf Wiedersehen

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It’s with a mix of sadness and excitement that I say goodbye after 15 years. It’s simply time to move on, to other projects — to finish the other projects — and to another kind of life. I’ve had a truly great run; the Weekly has been very good to me, and I’ll miss it — and you — a lot. But I’m very much looking forward to the future — where, I hope, I’ll see you soonish.

Until the next time,
Tom

I'm told that Christie plans to finish his documentary on artist Richard Serra and a screen adaptation of A.W. Hill's novel, Nowhere-Land. Perhaps more art-world satire?
