Well how’s this for a splash: The New York Times Magazine has named Chuck Klosterman its new Ethicist. The Atlantic Wire reports that Klosterman confirmed the news via email, writing, “This is a job I’ve wanted for 10 years. I don’t claim to be more ethical than anyone else, or even more ethical than the average person. But I love thinking about these types of problems, and I’ll try to be interesting. We’ll see what happens.”
A new Twitter account Klosterman specifically set up for the new gig can be found here.
As big Klosterman fans, we’re very excited about this.
