    Randy always liked to write. I wonder how/if this affects San Antonio, because Brad Lehman (who, the story says, is moving on to USAA) had been the Express-News' sports editor before taking the Houston job as part of a Hearst regional effort.

    I wonder how many senior level editors, here and elsewhere, would love to be able to return to their writing roots and give up the rat race, particularly at a place like
    Tribune Co.

    If Nick Mathews is smart, he'll use Randy Harvey as more than just a sports columnist, assuming the latter is open to it.

    Harvey has to be among the best story idea developers in the industry, and he was known for being a terrific soundboard for reporters in the newsroom.

    So now they get to take what few good writing jobs remain, after presiding over the decline of the business? Hey, that's not right! :p

    Just playing here, Randy is good people. But it sure seems like a move to get out of the line of fire or even off the sinking ship, the sort of thing Bill Dwyre -- happily writing away -- did when he flipped the keys of the Times sports department to others.
