Jenny 8. Lee @ NYT RIP
Jennifer 8. Lee, who does many of the more enjoyable stories at the New York Times, has taken the buyout offered by the Times to veterans whose salary requirements they now consider onerous. It is customary to speculate on what this means for the paper, which is like speculating on what a man overboard would mean for the Titanic. Suffice to say that we have appreciated her quick takes on myriad topics from city politics to smoked meat; hers is the sort of peripatetic sensibility that makes reporting seem like fun -- and if you're having fun, chances are your readers will, too.
