    I can't say with 100 percent certainty, but I believe this was created by Rob Hernandez leaving the Wisconsin State Journal for another job. (Edited to note Hernandez's new gig is not within the company, as I previously believed.)
    Hernandez, for those who don't know, was a longtime WSJ preps reporter/editor who recently moved to ASE.
