ONE MORE RAINES NOTE: When the Raines-is-out story first broke last Thursday, the first article posted on the Times web site (even before the Times' account) was the AP's version. I was shocked at the time to see that the author of the AP story was a young woman who had been an acquaintence of mine when I lived in Boston, she a student at Tufts while I was at Brandeis.
How ironic: the executive editor of the world's most important newspaper is brought down largely by the actions of a 26-year-old reporter, and when he steps down the AP account is written by a 24-year-old reporter- albeit one much smarter, more ethical, and better-looking than Jayson Blair.
