Revolution at NYT

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.
