John Block only cared about hiring a Pulitzer winner in 2003, so he could "show Scaife," who had hired people away from the Blade to "show Block." And so he hired Beltway Dave. It had nothing to do with the calamity that has wrecked the newspaper business, but Shribman's wonkish ways have only made the PG's problems worse. He needs to retire and escape to New Hampshire. The sooner the better.

Shribman is an elitist and a stick in the mud. But I happen to believe he's correct about "jagoff." It doesn't belong in the newspaper any more than "mo-fo" does.

Agree. If anyone else other than David made this policy, I don't think much would be said. It's a reflection on the snob-oriented, nose-in-air facade he's established in his time as Executive Editor.
