Rapid City Journal reporter Scott Aust has been fired. That's too bad. Scott is a solid meetings reporter and a good writer.
I'm not going to second-guess Journal management's decision because I didn't work with Scott. But, he made some of the most boring material in the world interesting reading. And the Journal will be hard-pressed to find a good replacement.
In the meantime, I'll wish Scott the best and hope he lands squarely on his feet.
