So ultra-liberal, know-it-all, he's-right-and-the-rest-of-us-are-brainless-nitwits, local columnist Sid Schwab announced he's quitting -- kind of. In typical Sid fashion, he has bowed out in the most obtuse manner imaginable by using -30- at the end as a "Look at what I know and you don't" parting shot. Perhaps the new owners of the Everett Herald said "enough" to the repetitive rants.
