THE TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN': There's not much I can add that other bloggers haven't already touched on, but I'm thrilled with the selection of Bill Keller as new Executive Editor of the New York Times. From reading his work I've gotten the impression that he's a brilliant, sharp, fair man, one who won't devote too many energies to pursuing petty political causes and editorializing from the front page, the way his predecessor so often did.
The Times has never been my favorite paper, more for its elitist impulses than its political ones, though I must say that reading it daily for work purposes for the past year has given me a new appreciation. Let's hope Bill Keller can bring the Grey Lady to new heights.
