Culling the Post

The Washington Post reports that more than 100 journalists have taken a buyout offered by the paper as part of a cost-cutting plan. Among those on the list: military correspondent Thomas Ricks, film critic Stephen Hunter and foreign correspondent Robin Wright.

Hunter (whose daughter I once tried to hire) gives the money quote: "I'm doing what The Post would not do: I'm firing myself for being too old."
