SOME THOUGHTS, on the end of Byran Calame's tenure as public editor at the Times. I'll just add that I think the Public Editor position has pretty much been a waste, and that if they want it to amount to something -- which I tend to doubt -- they should name an outsider to the position. How about Matthew Hoy?

UPDATE: In an update, Surber doubts that Hoy would fill the bill: "Too tough a grader. He does not hand out Gentlemen’s Cs — and Pinch wants Gentlemen’s Bs for his staff. The public editor is the cop who tells people, 'Move along, nothing to see here.'"
