Posties Go Wild For Pitt

FishbowlDC has obtained these messages posted by Posties in the paper’s internal messaging system during Brad Pitt’s visit to the Post newsroom last Friday.

Can you guess which one is Gene Weingarten’s?

    –Would anyone disagree with me that in the last 30 minutes, the entire newsroom has forfeited its right to ever high-hat pop culture again?

    – as many a child has said to their parents: You guys are embarrassing me!

    – says the woman who passed RB’s office and then double backed on her way to her desk.

    – i’m not in the building, and yet even I am suffused with the glow of His presence via receipt of minute-by-minute accounts from various parties, attesting to the magnificent wonderfulness of the Coming, and the degree of their propinquity thereto.

    – no fair for all far-flung bureau reporters!!

    – i wouldn’t say that. I’m in kabul and I feel like i’m there…

    – he’s ugly, you ain’t missing nuthin’

    – Yeah, well, Clive Owen just showed up at the MoCo bureau, with ELEPHANTS!

But the best comes from Chuck Lane:

    Geez, it’s not like Peter Sarsgaard just walked in or something.

Howie Kurtz says:

    He was, in short, acting far more professionally than some of those around him.

    There was no sign of Angelina, whose presence might have endangered the publication of tomorrow’s paper.

One Postie told FishbowlDC: “Total Beatlemania hysteria going on. It’s kind of embarassing. This must be what it was like when Robert Redford was researching All the President’s Men.”

Lane and Rodriguez to Post Editorial Board

From the Post’s internal announcement:

    We are pleased to announce that Chuck Lane and Eva Rodriguez have agreed to join our board as editorial writers.

    Chuck, who grew up in Montgomery County, already did a stint in
    Editorial, in 2000, so we know how good he is across an amazing range of subjects. Before coming to The Post, he worked at Newsweek as a foreign correspondent and international affairs writer from 1987 to 1993. He was senior editor and later editor of The New Republic from 1993 to 1999. For most of this millennium, he’s been The Post’s crack Supreme Court reporter. He’s on book leave now, but he will return to National in June to help cover the end of the court term and then join Editorial at the beginning of July.

    Eva, originally from Florida, is Washington bureau chief of
    BusinessWeek magazine. From 1999 to 2005, she was executive editor and then editor in chief of Legal Times. She reported for the same newspaper, covering D.C. courts and then the Supreme Court, from 1992 to 1997. She’s covered legal affairs for the Wall Street Journal and edited legal coverage for the New York Times. She is known for her extraordinary acumen, tenacity and good sense, and also for being a terrific person. She, too, will join us July 2.
