Ind. Gov't. - Re, Mary Beth Schneider of the Indy Star

She tweeted this afternoon:

Mary Beth Schneider ‏@marybschneider

So. What do Tony Bennett and I have in common?

For both of us, this is last day on job. I am taking a 3-month leave of absence from @indystar to care for my parents.

Odds are that even if I return it may not be to the Statehouse beat. Just covered what could be my last Statehouse news conference.

The ILB will miss reading MBS's stories and tweets. She is one of the last remaining Indianapolis Star reporters with real institutional knowledge, she has been the Statehouse reporter since Governor's Bayh's second term began.

Proving that a great reporter is great no matter what the medium, she seemingly instantly adapted to the limitations of Twitter and set the standard for its use in reporting hard news. Moreover, she was the master of hilarious running gags. Her unsurpassed skill and her dry wit will be missed! Hopefully only for three months ...
