The Culture: A Victory for Hootie

Sportsblogger Dan Lewis points out an interesting secondary effect of the deposing of Howell Raines:
With the resignation of Howell Raines from the NY Times, and with the Masters having come and gone, I'm willing to bet that Augusta has weathered the firestorm. Perhaps we'll get to see if the controvery was a real one, or a newsroom/editorial-driven one.
I don't have much to add on the topic of Raines' resignation, although I would note that if I were a tabloid editor, my headline this morning would have read "HOWELL'S 'RAINE' OF ERROR ENDS," or something to that effect. It seems only fitting.
