Scanning the wires: When I have a few spare minutes at work, I'll often scan the wire feed coming into the newsroom. This is a raw feed that you really can't access anywhere on the Web. As I was checking out the op-ed wire coming in last evening, I noticed today's editorials from The New York Times had arrived.
And then it struck me, when I saw the slug for this editorial, that Maureen Dowd has taken over the entire Times editorial board.
The slug: EDIT-RUMMY-NYT
There's enough room in the slugline to spell Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's full last name.
I just thought it was interesting.
