X off another LAT foreign reporter

Paul Watson is still listed on the Los Angeles Times staff roster as the paper's man in Jakarta, but he's headed to the Toronto Star. Note to the staff there:

Today, the Toronto Star announced the return home of Paul Watson, Canada’s only Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist. After a distinguished career as a foreign correspondent with the Los Angeles Times, Paul is returning to launch a unique venture – the world’s first multimedia Arctic-Aboriginal beat.
Climate change, new technologies and the voracious global demand for energy and other resources have set off a rush to exploit the Far North unlike any other in history. Paul is an accomplished photojournalist and best-selling author with two decades experience as a foreign correspondent in Africa, the Balkans and Asia. He has earned an international reputation for bravery, integrity, determination and an uncanny ability to find those must-read stories.

As bureau chief in Jakarta, Watson was "responsible for a vast territory that includes the world's most populous Muslim nation, the islands of the South Pacific and the countries of Indochina." He previously reported for years from India.
