HuffPost‘s Elise Foley a little emotional about her colleague leaving

Jack Mirkinson covered the media. Asked online where he was off to, he replied, “Nowhere just yet. …I’m not going anywhere yet – just taking a short breather. …Nowhere just yet. taking a little break and then seeing what’s out there. …I don’t think I’ve had this many long, drawn-out conversations explaining my life choices since I came out.” 

Just so Elise doesn’t ask why I didn’t include other colleague reactions, HuffPost‘s White House reporter Jennifer Bendery was also upset: “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WHAT???? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.” TPM‘s Igor Bobic‘s response, meanwhile, was a frowny face. So was HuffPost‘s Ryan J. Reilly‘s.
