Inquirer Changes

Chris Satullo is stepping down as editorial page editor for the Philadelphia Inquirer. Whether you agreed with his editorials or not, I think it is universally agreed that his work with Citizen Voices a civic engagement program he helped found in 1996, has been a positve force in the area. A buddy of mine was involved in this some years ago and told me it was a great experience. In Sunday's paper, in the Center Square column where he makes this announcement, he also lists some regrets and some accomplishments. About a year ago he and I emailed a bit and I found him intelligent, interesting, and genuinely interested in getting more people involved in the social fabric of the region. I wish him all the best in his new ventures. He will continue to write Center Square and work with Citizen Voices.

any intelligent voice in the inquirer will be missed. Is there any way he can take steven a smith with him?

I myself won't miss the Inky editorials that recommend Philadelphians vote for Republicans just because Democrats have been in power a long time. I won't miss the constant harping about the wage tax from the editorial board, of which only 2, iirc, actually live in the city or the holier than thou moralizing about McGreevey or Clinton.
