Padget Moving on

Jonathan Padget, who authors the twice-a-month "Arts Beat" column in the WaPo is moving on.

Starting Tuesday, he will be working as a the new Style copy editor. His arts editorial aide duties will be handled by Kate Wichmann through late March, with coverage after that TBD.

Everytime the WaPo says TBD for one of their arts column I get nervous; the last TBD that we're still waiting for the "D" was for the addition of a new freelancer to replace Glenn Dixon and bring the "Galleries" column back to once a week.

Obviously the WaPo has decided that they will keep "Galleries" to just twice a month and are too chicken to announce that fact.

If you don't get it, you don't get it.


I'm at the University of Arkansas at Monticello, and this morning the car was covered under half an inch of ice, which I am told it's quite unusual for this area!

More later.
