    Good news. I don't know Reid personally but I'm very familiar with the sports section he ran in St. Louis. The P-D has a damn good section considering what all has happened over the years.

    Whew. Spared the guillotine. Now to comment on Fran's post, I myself would love to know who took over in St. Louis. Did someone get elevated from the editing ranks there?
