Wow, Mr. Nepa Media, the TT published this days ago. You must be sleeping on the job. Guess it didn't show up on Pilchesky's site soon enought for you to catch it. or maybe your sources of insider info at the TT have dried up since those remaining:

A.) Never met you
B.) Met you and know what you're all about.

Happy hunting.

Damn. Where's Jeneane gone?

She will make the county regret ever knowing her. What a mixed-bag of nuts all rolled into one person.

Lynne's good for that job. In her day, she was a good reporter but had to deal with Pilchesky and his can of loonies. At least she went to J school. All Ikeler had on her resume was her ability -- and penchant -- for swallowing.

Lynne will get eaten alive. Wait til the first time she gets thrown to the wolves when the commissioners screw up something. It won't be pretty.

Lynne's good people and a good reporter who got caught in the T-T spin cycle. She's a pro who knows exactly what she's getting into. Good for her.

She used to have a voice that would make Beethoven cringe.

Um, when she was 13 or something? Her voice has always seemed normal to me.

When she was much younger, and first starting out at the Times, she would come back from covering a meeting and go into a long and loud monologue with that night's editor about what she was going to write. Maybe she stopped doing that.

5:31, I'm glad you got that out in the open. Imagine, an eager-beaver reporter at an entry-level newspaper talking with the night editor before she writes her story! And being long-winded about it! It's amazing the desk was able to get the paper out amid the talking.
