    At least three in editorial, according to Gary Scott's blog...

    Crazy. They JUST filled a position nine days ago.

    If you read the comments on the Riverside blog, it alludes to the editor of the paper sending her husband to Japan to work on a story. Anyone know who are the editor and reporter in question? Nice to think big on a story, but I'm surprised Riverside would be doing much foreign travel these days.

    Not a reporter. He's a photographer.

    Know lots of people here.

    When an editor sends her husband on a prestigious, expensive assignment --- well, that's why some papers have rules against spouses supervising spouses.

    The P-E has a history of staffers being involved, but this particular relationship has not always gone over well.

    Can't defend WHO they sent, but WHY my local paper sent someone to Japan makes mucho sense -- R'side was the sister city of the Japan town leveled by the quake, and they had more than a half-century of shared history...it was far more than just the usual Chamber of Commerce claptrap.

    Makes sense. But that's one where you have to say "sorry, honey, there's an extra BJ in it for you, but we have to send someone else."

    Do the readers really care about what happened it Japan? It's a fact most Americans don't give a crap about foreign affairs. This smacks of an assignment to win an award.
