Kinsley coverage: compare and contrast!

From the LAT:

Los Angeles Times editorial page editor Michael Kinsley is leaving the newspaper after a little more than a year, saying his attempts to alter the nature of opinion journalism and buff up its profile on the Internet mostly failed.

From the NYT:

Michael Kinsley, the editorial and opinion editor of The Los Angeles Times, left the newspaper yesterday on what he described as a bitter note after a controversial year in which he experimented with a section normally known for its stodginess.

Meanwhile, Andres Martinez vows to “do a better job of bringing in local writers on the daily Op-Ed page.” Time to start a Give D.J. Waldie A Column committee. Although I guess he’s a government official. So that would be weird.
