Moving on up

Troy Senik, legal editor at the L.A. Daily Journal, is leaving for a speechwriting job at the Bush White House. He formerly scribbled for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Newt Gingrich and had not been at the DJ for much more than a year, if that long. Here's a snip of his departure email to legal contacts:

I am moving to Washington D.C., and tomorrow will be my final day in the office. As of Monday, Sara Libby will be acting as the new opinion editor. I assure you that you will find her delightful to work with and supremely qualified for the position. From here on out, all new submissions, pitches, etc. should be e-mailed to her...

For those of you who have pieces waiting with us, I am turning our calendar over to Sara unchanged. The change in personnel will not affect whether or not your article is published. All it will ensure is that your new editor is nicer than your old one. Take care, everyone. It's been an unrivaled pleasure.
