    What's the deal with Newsday's bylines? Sometimes they're staff writers, sometimes they're correspondents. The only pattern I can maybe detect is on the road, you're a correspondent. In New York, you're a staff writer. Maybe. That can't be true, can it? What's the point?

    You're right: When they're on the road, they're listed as correspondents.

    I used to wonder the same thing.

    Gotta be just one of their goofy style quirks. "Correspondents" work in the field, "staff writers" work at a desk. Even if it's one and the same person.

    They let Marty "I know more about the Mets than anyone else" Noble go, so they can't be all that stupid.
