Cozy? I have an unwritten guideline (actually, I think it is written somewhere, but I can’t recall where) about this weblog that goes something like this: Don’t blog about the job-changes of or controversies surrounding magazine people (especially editors) or magazine transactions, especially when such news appears to be dancing on a grave. Why? Both topics bore me: One of the reasons I avoid marketing trade publications is the high percentage of such transactional noise that fill their pages.

Of course, I have been know to make very visible exceptions to that guidleline, most notably when the news involves magazine people associated with unethical or inappropriate practices or those who display over-inflated arrogance, like, for example Graydon Carter.
