Shapiro Leaves Salon

From Mike Allen’s Playbook:

    “–WALTER SHAPIRO’S LATEST ADVENTURE — Dear Friends: Salon.com, which has struggled to make a profit in sunny times, has suddenly slashed its small staff in the face of the cold gusts of economic winter. As a result, my three-year experiment with online journalism as Salon’s Washington bureau chief has come to an unexpected end. Having been through these journalistic upheavals before, I am sanguine as I begin to contemplate my next adventure and search for my next perch in New York or Washington. In fact, I feel like a Civil War general who has had eight horses shot out from under him, yet remains eager to saddle up again. The best way to reach me via email is at this address [first initial, last name at mindspring dot com]. … All the best, Walter.”
