Credit Where It's Due

After excoriating the management of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune for dumping James Lileks' column a couple of weeks back, I would be a cad indeed if I didn't take a moment here to applaud that very same Strib's decision to do, er, exactly what I said they should do: point Lileks at their online section and turn him loose. As of yesterday, James is now the poobah-in-chief of the Strib-owned buzz.mn, and there is much rejoicing.

It took a little while for them to figure things out, but all's well that ends well in this case. Congrats to James, the Strib, and their mutual readership--which now stands a much better chance of growing than it did a week ago.
