The Argus reporting staff is losing some of its heft, but not too much. Our education reporter, Linh Tat, who undoubtedly has posed more questions to more people in Argus history, leaves us today after several years on the job.
Linh has done just about everything one can do in Fremont: She’s hiked Mission Peak, mounted the Saddle Rack’s mechanical bull and lapped Lake Liz. She’s also staked out elementary schools, kept tabs on accused child molesters and steered clear of every fluffy, overfed kitty cat that crossed her path.
Linh had the fastest metabolism of any Argus reporter, and the best complexion. Much to my embarrassment, she also threw the tightest spiral.
After attending a few too many late night meetings, where she watched two school board members shed frequent tears of fiscal restraint and Union City Mayor Mark Green find himself funny, Linh is ready to experience a new form of suffering: New York City in August.
Linh’s got an exciting opportunity in the Big Apple, and we wish her the best. With all the tasty pizza and cheese cake in her midst, NYC presents Linh with her best opportunity yet to finally top the 100-pound mark — if she can afford to eat at all.
