Well that didn't last long. St. Louis Post-Dispatch
reporter Tom Uhlenbrock
Uhlenbrock, who joined the paper in 1987, had spent a decade penning travelogues
but got reassigned to the metro staff about two weeks ago. Instead of spinning tales from far-flung fun-lands, he was supposed to get the nitty-gritty
on local universities. P-D
editor Arnie Robbins told Daily RFT
's Chad Garrison
that the metro desk needed more "firepower."
Uhlenbrock's last day on the higher-ed beat will be Friday. A blast-off, sure, but probably not the one the newspaper was envisioning.
