I'm starting a new job
Hey, everyone! I just finished a nice, long vacation in Wichita, where I enjoyed fall temperatures and some much-appreciated time with family and friends.
Now it's back to Dallas. And blogging. And the Morning News' news copy desk -- but just for one more week.
Next Monday, I'll be starting a new job at the paper, as presentation editor of the Editorial Department. Here's the description:
This unusual position blends the skills of a copy, layout and originating editor and oversees production of all Editorial, Viewpoints and Points pages, a minimum of 18 pages each week. In addition, the presentation editor is a full member of the Editorial Board and helps shape the newspaper's position on issues, blogs regularly on DallasMorningViews and writes occasional editorials. The editor deals with freelancers and is backup editor of Viewpoints and Points.Viewpoints is our Op/Ed page. Points is our Sunday opinion section. And Dallas Morning Views is the Editorial blog.
In other news, if you've e-mailed me in the past, oh, month and haven't gotten a response yet, I apologize. It's been pretty crazy, and I'm now officially on the catch-up train. (I'm usually quite prompt; I promise.)
