First Stuff, now this. The

First Stuff, now this. The editor of Us Weekly, one of our favorite magazines, has just left them for American Media, the company that publishes the National Enquirer and The Star, among others.

    Bad idea, Bonnie. You were the darling of the publishing world, the hotshot who couldn't miss. People trembled and collapsed in your wake. Smart girls from Colby got your coffee every morning, hitching their wagon to your star. And now this? What gives? Is your goal to change the tabloid industry and make it respectable? Single-handedly? And thereby cement your legacy in the annals of journalism history, like Joseph Pulitzer in reverse? I'm not sure what you're up to, but good luck. But remember, if it doesn't work, I don't think the gatekeepers of Respectable Journalism are going to let you back in. -adm
