I Want A Promotion!

Hey, Kevin? I think it's time we once again reconsidered my title around these parts. After all, if Andrew Sullivan's blog -- which he apparently only sometimes writes, and other times lets his staffers write stuff under his name -- can rate a "senior editor" of the "most important one-man blog in the world," why can't we have one, too? And why can't I be that one?

My qualifications: well, I've been with the site longer and earlier than anyone but you (we won't discuss my almost-year-long sabbatical). Also, I... er... um... well, I can't think of any other reason. But that could be me just having a "senior moment," and -- a-ha! -- another reason to make me "Senior Editor!"

Plus, I really, really, really want it.

Come on. It wouldn't really mean that much, except to me.

Do it for Sully.

Great cartoon, my only criticism is that the original quote was not "some folks greed", but "white folks greed".

Anon Y. Mous:

I've always been intrigued by the title "Editor at Large" (not, apparently, to be confused with the "Large Editor"). What does it mean? Kind of like a criminal at large, whereabouts unknown, but whose capture is sought?

Or, better yet, how is it that writers are called Editors at all? If all you do is edit your own writings, are you really an Editor? Seems a stretch to me.

Simply based on the fact that Jay Tea uses ellipses sparingly and correctly and, thankfully, only when necessary, he should be named Senior Editor.

That, and he be writin' pretty good and stuff.

Upset Old Guy:

Better go back and re-read that article J. The guy claims to be ONE OF THE senior editors. That implies more. Maybe Sullivan isn't very good at punctuation.

On the other hand, you are quite good at punctuation, spelling and what all else. So, even though I don't get a vote, you've got my vote. Or endorsement. Whatever.

Jim Addison:

Back in the day, Jay, your colleagues bandied about several titles, but I think Kevin still tries to maintain the facade of a "family website" here (as if some 11 year old is surfing political sites) so most of them would be off limits.

Besides, why would you WANT a title after Sullivan had it? Hasn't it been "Sullied" by the experience?

But if your heart is set on it, tell Kevin I vote "Yea" (as if I had a vote in anything). Just be darned careful when you are pinning on Sully's badge, mmmkay?

You wouldn't want to prick yourself . . .

Peter F. ~ Watch it, pal. I get all my ellipses from Poughkeepsie, they are all genuine Poughkeepsies, every blessed one. (Seriously - you should try the pickled in garlic ones).

Jay used to tell us it was for his amusement he kept LW around, but I always suspected Lee was in possession of photographs of Mr. Duckie in flagrante IYKWIMAITTYD.
