This looks like a job for ...

Just assuming, for the sake of argument, that the common cold is well and truly cured and the Fractious Near East at peace, thus justifying the expenditure of frontpage space on a story that boils down to Supervisors Don't Mind That Previous Job Didn't Break Any Rules -- is Probie Hoseman* just another Popular Orange Vegetable, or is some deeper meaning afoot?

For all that they're the Voice of The People and everything, tabloids make The People work pretty hard sometimes. You don't just have to get "probie" and "hoseman," you have to know the Bravest from the Finest. Good thing the Daily News had -- um, triple byline and two more in the shirttail, five reporters free to work on bringing this epic to the reader. It does sort of make you wonder: Do you guys have any copy editors left?

* Stay tuned for the sequel, "Four Hosemen of the Apocalypse." Thanks, I'll be here all week.
