The shakeup at the Santa Barbara paper has been interesting to read about, if only in the train wreck sense.
A quick recap: Reclusive billionaire owns paper. She quashes news of the opinion editor's DUI sentence and then makes him publisher. Incoming publisher says he'll oversee some news operations, and journalists worry about the separation of news and editorial. And actor Rob Lowe is somehow involved.
One other edict that caught my attention: The reclusive billionaire owner has decided that, when referring to women, blonde will always be spelled with an E, noun or adjective.
