    You have to hate to lose any of the great ones, even if it's to a promotion.

    Is this the second or third thread we've had on this today? I've lost count.

    I didn't realize he was the weekend editor as well. That's insane.

    On talent and work ethic alone, he would probably do a better job of running an entire newsroom than most who do that job. But this is still an impressive step because you've got to figure that there were plenty of great candidates on news-side already at a paper that good. He's done the Sunday thing, and he's certainly qualified. Still it's a remarkable achievement to be chosen to run local over people who've spent their entire careers on that side.

    I asked him for his opinion on a complicated (non-sports) series proposal of mine some years ago. I expected maybe a couple sentences in a few days, a general thumbs-up or thumbs-down. He dissected the thing, in very little time, and the suggestions were excellent. Now, I would not have asked his opinion in the first place if I hadn't believed he's an extraordinary journalist. But I have to say, I was impressed. Also, grateful that he'd expend that much effort.

    So they have an executive editor, three senior editors, a weekend editor, a deputy managing editor and multiple managing editors.

    Sounds like an awful lot of chiefs to me.

    He got the job because there is no one better than him.
    He should be ME.

    Looks like Washington Post named a Local Editor. The memo (excerpted below) doesn't mention what Emilio is/will be doing.

    We are pleased to announce that Vernon Loeb will be returning to The Post
    as Local Editor.

    Vernon joins us from The Philadelphia Inquirer, where he has been deputy
    managing editor for news, overseeing the metro, business, health & science
    and national/foreign desks, as well as the newsroom’s interactions with
    Philly.com. It’s his second stint at the Inquirer, having previously
    covered the statehouse and City Hall and done a tour as a correspondent in
    Southeast Asia.

    The last time he decamped from Philadelphia, in 1994, it was also to The
    Post, where he covered the second round of Marion Barry as mayor, before
    moving to the National Staff to cover the CIA and the Pentagon. He left The
    Post after a decade to run California investigations for the Los Angeles
