    My SE just told me that Jon Mark Beilue has been fired from the Amarillo Daily News. He'd been at the paper about 25 years, the last 15 or so as SE. Nice of them to let him hang around long enough to get the football tab out.

    And the reason?

    Edited to reflect change in info. I'm happy for Jon-Mark's promotion though it's tough to imagine him not in sports.

    Amarillo, home of the Rusty Nail.

    John Mark will be the new metro columnist in Amarillo.

    We could use a little more on this, from visitor or somebody. Obviously, being named metro columnist is a bit different than getting "fired."

    In some places, they call that getting "promoted."

    Last I heard, JMB is a metro columnist. Shit-for-brains, cliche-ridden ASE will take over in the interim. Executive editor, who has been tabbed "a bitch" by most in the newsroom, likely to hire a buddy from California or perhaps promote ASE. If the latter happens, God be with those in the department. Dude is friggin' clueless.

    That is an unfortunate name-middle name combo these days.

    In other places, they call that hell.

    From my limited dealings with him, Jon seems like a really nice guy and someone who knows what the hell he's doing. I hope for his sake this is something he wanted. It sure sounds like a lot less work.

    And the Big Texan, home of the 72-ounce T-bone.

    Eat it (and all the accompanying fixins') in an hour and it's free.
