Village Voice Laying Off Longtime Voice of Nat Hentoff

nat-704783.jpgNo one is safe! Former Voiceer Tricia Romano reports over at Pop & Politics that the Village Voice has laid-off long-time columnist Nat Hentoff who’s been at the paper since 1958 writing mainly about Jazz but more recently about civil liberties.

Also on the way out is fashion writer, Lynn Yaeger, a 30 year veteran of the paper, and staff writer Chloe Hilliard.

With all due immodesty, I think it doesn’t help to lose me because people have told me they read the Voice not only for me, but certainly for me.” Fortunately for those people Hentoff will still be writing a weekly column for the United Media syndicate and contributing pieces to The Wall Street Journal.

Held in a Fifth Avenue Park-facing apartment, it was a delightful if homogeneous mash-up of well-heeled lawyers, bankers, media — and one actor:
