An ounce of Prevention is worth a pound of Child

An ounce of Prevention is worth a pound of Child: With an earthquake-metophor-headline and an atomic-bomb-metaphor opening paragraph, this story in Monday’s NYT by David Carr keeps the G+J circulation-cooking scandal alive. Carr reports that not only is the harried Diane Potter leaving, but that Child magazine publisher Kate Kelly Smith is leaving to become publisher of Rodale’s Prevention magazine. (Despite inclusion of earthquake and atomic bomb metaphors, Carr eschews the rats jumping off a sinking ship one.)
