I carried on so with that blog yesterday
about Sylvester Brown's tempestuous departure
from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Editor Arnie Robbins
told me he's not sure if the paper *will* replace Brown. "Right now I am not even thinking about that," said Robbins. "That's something we'll have to think about."
