Happy Thursday. We're still hanging fire on a folo to the News-Leader's dust-up with the Community Foundation; CF bossman Gary Funk is out of the office until Monday. We did have an interesting conversation with Don Wyatt, editor of the daily, and we'd love to tell you all about it -- but after reminding Wyatt of the basic rules of engagement he quickly opted to go off-the-record to vent his spleen.
Mmm ... spleen.
We can understand why Wyatt might be a tad edgy. He presided over an incredibly mediocre weekend piece about Hmong in the Ozarks -- a package that came, sources say, after Gannett corporate types swept into town and complained about a lack of diversity in the newspaper. Coincidence? You decide.
