One intriguing element of the Orange County Register‘s resurgence is that the Aaron Kushner era has compelled several former staffers to rejoin the fold. This was the case earlier this month with business reporter Bernard Wolfson and is true once again last week for Jim McCurdie (pictured).

He also leaves behind in Paris a great job title: for Market News International, he was the continental European editor. Reflective of his time abroad, Wolfson speaks three additional languages besides English (French, Spanish and Italian).
