Former Los Angeles Times editor Dean Baquet and his wife, the author Dylan Landis, were snapped recently while riding the subway in New York, where he is now a managing editor at the New York Times.

"He is reading 'A Guide to the Selected Poems of T. S. Eliot,' by B.C. Southam. She is reading 'Selected Poems,' by T. S. Eliot," says the posting at The Underground New York Public Library, "a visual library featuring the Reading-Riders of the NYC subways." That's a project of photographer Ourit Ben-Haim.

Baquet, of course, left Los Angeles shortly after his 2006 ouster as editor of the LAT in a battle with the Tribune suits in Chicago over budgets and the future of the newspaper. Last fall he was named managing editor for news at the NYT, after serving a few years as Washington bureau chief.
