In its farcical "reinvention," Gannett's  Cincinnati Enquirer  is cutting loose Paul Clark.  Paul is a writer and editor of uncommon ability whom I have had the good fortune to number among my colleagues and whom I can recommend to you without reservation. He is one of the best.   If an employer with more perspicacity than The Enquirer 's management (you must number in the multitudes), would like to engage his services, he can be reached at pclark500@gmail.com.  If I were you, I would not delay.

Jodie Lau, a colleague at the Arizona Republic with whom I worked a few years back in a Maynard Institute program, writes to say that she has established an award named after me. Now with Gannett's Phoenix design studio, she has established a weekly headline writing award that will culminate in a monthly award. The award is the JohnnyMac, and the trophy is a stuffed leopard wearing a polka-dot bow tie. I might not be the most wholesome influence on headline writers, having once published at The Cincinnati Enquirer the headline "Every little breeze seems to whisper feces," about a residential neighborhood in Detroit troubled by odors from a sewage treatment plant.

Years ago, Andy Rooney did his 60 Minutes  curmudgeon shtick with the Sunday paper. He took up a Sunday edition of The Cincinnati Enquirer  and methodically discarded the sections in which he was not interested, such as the classifieds ("I already have a job"). At the end, he had a heap of discards and a few flimsy sheets of actual news.  We in The Enquirer  newsroom thought that the Rooney Shuck was hilarious. Perhaps we did not give enough attention to the prospect that many, if not most, of our customers were performing a Reverse Rooney every Sunday, discarding the news and going straight to the comics, the classifieds, and the coupons.  Now, of course, we have online metrics, as Derek Thompson points out in a recent article in The Atlantic , "Why Audiences Hate Hard News--and Love Pretending Otherwise.

Some ass at Deadspin has had the presumption to describe Cincinnati chili as " the worst regional foodstuff in America or anywhere else. "  We can only deplore an impoverished palate unable to appreciate the finest of fast foods, and partly on odd and illegitimate grounds.  The writer thinks the less of Cincinnati chili because it is spread over spaghetti noodles, and because it was invented in the 1920s by Greeks who had the temerity...

1. I have a mortgage. Why else do you think anyone goes in to work every day to deal with those people? 2. I lack the imagination to write fiction and the temperament to do academic scholarship.  As an undergraduate at Michigan State University, I imagined that I had potential to write poetry and fiction. When Syracuse University turned me down for the master's program in creative writing but offered me a fellowship in the academic program, I took it, eventually leaving the program without completing the dissertation for the Ph.D.  It took me an unconscionably long time to recognize that I was not really cut out for academic scholarship, sitting in a carrel ransacking texts for publishable insights.

Dezmine Wells, a highly touted former Xavier basketball player hoping to transfer to Maryland, was in College Park on Wednesday as the school studied a sexual assault allegation against him that a prosecutor said resulted from a game of "truth or dare. " Wells was undergoing the sort of Maryland review required of any prospective student who has been disciplined by another institution or has a criminal record. Wells' expulsion from Xavier, announced by the Cincinnati school last month, triggered the review by a Maryland student conduct office working with the university's office of undergraduate admissions, school officials said.

Former Ravens backup quarterback Anthony Wright agreed in principle to a one-year contract with the Cincinnati Bengals last night, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer. The Bengals have been seeking insurance in case starter Carson Palmer is not ready for the start of the season. Palmer is coming off major knee surgery. The Ravens never showed interest this offseason in re-signing Wright, who was 2-5 as a starter for the Ravens last season when Kyle Boller went down with a toe injury.

Ray Lewis will not be called to testify in defense of Nate Webster, the former NFL linebacker charged with sex and intimidation crimes in Ohio. The Cincinnati Enquirer posted an update today saying the Ravens' Pro Bowl linebacker would not be asked to take the stand. It was never clear why Lewis had be subpoenaed. He and Webster both played at Miami, but not at the same time. A Ravens spokesman said he knew nothing about Lewis' involvement.
