We don't usually cover hair care stories, but The New York Times is reporting that David Talbot, the chief executive and editor-in-chief of Salon is stepping down. Why a salon needs an editor-in-chief (and, further, why media writer David Carr is covering this for The Times) is unclear.
Talbot tells Carr:
"I think the timing is right," said Mr. Talbot, who will continue as chairman of the company while he works on a book about Robert F. Kennedy. "If the business was shaky, I would feel uncomfortable, but things are now stable and I think I am handing my baby off to two women I have complete trust in."
Wow, a hair stylist, editor, writer, and mother: We're respecting this Talbot fellow more and more. And, judging from Carr's headline, he seems to be some sort of mouse trainer as well!
