BEST LONG GOODBYE (2006)
After most workers are let go, they're upset, not magnanimous -- which only makes the final farewell of former 9News anchor/ reporter Adam Resnik seem all the more remarkable. When his contract wasn't renewed, Resnik sent a 2,400-word e-mail to colleagues -- but instead of ripping into station execs for their shortsightedness, he offered complimentary remarks for more than 175 alphabetically listed co-workers ranging from the prominent ("Adele Arakawa, for your class and professionalism, and for always bringing tasty snacks into the meeting") to the obscure ("Johnny Wells, for making me smile widely every time the live truck rolls up with you behind the wheel"). Resnik's reportedly working in the financial-services field these days. If that doesn't take, he should consider politics.
