No neckties, but get to work by 9 a.m.

New Los Angeles Daily Journal editor David Houston must feel the newsroom needed some rules. "Male reporters won't be required to wear neckties and there is no story quota. However, DJ reporters will have to write at least three blog posts a week and do "outreach" (meeting up with important lawyers on their beat) at least four times a month. They were also told to get to work no later than 9 a.m." Gary Scott
