A hearty congratulations to City Paper alum Andrew Beaujon on accepting a gig at Poynter as the site's "new Romenesko." There, he'll be writing a media blog edited by Julie Moos that will replace the work of Jim Romenesko, who left Poynter last year and launched his own blog.

@FishbowlDC vs. @ABeaujon

Fishbowl D.C. editor (and former Washington City Paper cover subject) Betsy Rothstein and TBD.com arts editor (and former City Paper managing editor) Andrew Beaujon matched up yesterday in a Twitter battle for the ages.

Four-Year Roundup

One time in an edit meeting, Erik Wemple said I'd make a terrible profile subject. Drawing a line on a piece of paper, he put me at one end and Jonathan Rees at the other. Rees was too nuts, he said (paraphrasing here) and I was too boring. The ideal City Paper subject, he posited, [...]

Good morning, Friday! I'm in a better mood today, don't worry.

Our Morning Roundup: The Busiest Travel Day of the Year Edition

Good morning, readers. Sad news: Abe Pollin has died.
But what I really want to talk about is how today is the Busiest Travel Day of the Year. You may never have heard this, even though it happens every year. It means lots and lots of people will be going from one undisclosed location to another [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Are the Redskins Using Robert Henson to Protect Zorn, Campbell, Snyder, FedEx, Etc…?

Dim WitsGate™ makes it to the front page of the Washington Post! That means the story of Robert Henson's Twittered insults of Redskins fans — calling them "dim wits" and saying they "work 9 to 5 at Mcdonalds" — occupies the same real estate where Watergate became the original -Gate!
Bottom line: Cheap Seats Daily's hype [...]
