FBLA found this interesting item in our tip box:

To: Editorial Staff
From: Peter Bart

Dana Harris will assume her new duties as editor of Variety.com, effective January 29. She has done an outstanding job in several roles here at Variety and I am delighted to welcome her to her new position. She joins Michael Speier and his growing team, which includes Phil Gallo and Stuart Levine, in spearheading our assault on the web and accelerating our formidable progress in that arena. Unlike the Los Angeles Times, we do not need to apologize for a “bunker mentality” nor do we need to appoint an Innovation Editor.
All of our editors, and reporters, are “pro Innovation” and both our newspaper and Variety.com reflect that.

FBLA wonders if Variety will publish this exactly as written. Knowing Bart, we bet yes.
