Getahn was the very best hire the Tennessean made when the Nashville Banner folded. I remember welcoming him to the business desk, and being thankful that he was on our team. He was a friend, a scoop machine and the most feared and respected real estate reporter I’ve ever known.

As much as I’ve genuinely enjoyed using Twitter to gaslight the charter zealots over the years, I think my New Year’s resolution will be to just ignore them. They lost. We won. Onward.
