NY Times goes to smaller page size, will tighten editing. Horrors!
"It's an insult to the people doing substance here," an unnamed Timesperson tells the [NY] Observer. Restaurant critic Frank Bruni [however,] isn't alarmed by a smaller Times. "Do you succeed in reading 95 percent of the paper every day? It suggests to me that we could lose 5 percent and probably live."
Let’s hear it for Bruni. Less space for the in-print bloviators, please, and this goes for the well-meaning straight-news writers too. Write tight!
They should all bone up on their Strunk & White.
