What will the News-Leader do without James Goodwin? He's gained a solid rep as a good political reporter; now he's leaving to head to St. Louis, according to our sources. Not the best way to staff a looming election season.
Also leaving the paper: Nina Rao, whose name last appeared in this space on Tuesday. We'd type more, but Ms. Rao's supporters might again claim she's being pilloried. Can't have that.
