    So, he's obviously the publisher's kid, but what's his story?

    He's been at the Times a couple of weeks and while he's covered mundane things like City Hall pressers, he's also been on A1. He's got the top story on the website right now.

    A quick look around the web finds snarky articles that refer to him as a 28 year old rookie, but surely he had a job before this.

    Where was he prior to the Times, and what's the word around the building now that he's landed there -- and on A1?

    Oregonian before this. Providence Journal before that.

    His writing could use a little punch.

    Today he's writing about the Yankees & it's the lead article right now on nytimes.com.

    That's pretty typical fare for an intern, don't you think?

    Well he's a lot more than an intern.

    But he does seem to get to write about a lot of different topics. And he gets very nice placement.

    Yeah, as in born on third base.

    Off topic, but I noticed this quote from a Yankees asshat.

    AJ Romeo, director of Yankees-Steiner Collectibles, said the bustling store, styled like a museum, offers a remedy for the shrinking access that the stadium provides fans. “We still give the fans an opportunity to get an autographed baseball,” he said. Prices for the baseballs on display ranged from $50 to $2,500.

    From reports out this way, people said good things. It's not like a Luke Russert situation. They actually made him go out and work outside the NYT.
    And I'd much rather have a boss of the future working on the news side than the advertising side.
