Top 11 Reasons Star Tribune Editor Anders Gyllenhaal Is Leaving to Become Editor of the Miami Herald

11. The Power Line guys rarely read the Miami Herald

10. He realizes that global warming is BS and Miami won’t soon be swallowed up by a rising ocean

9. He misses Daunte Culpepper

8. Wanted to move to a city with less of a crime problem

7. The Herald has David Berry, who’s kind of a more liberal James Lileks

6. No rival newspapers with $75 hobby columnists who do a better job than his professionals

5. There are no mean nicknames for the Herald, like Star and Sickle and Red Star

4. No one at the Miami Herald will be constantly hounding him to hire Laura Billings

3. Hopes to start driving a Ferrari, shave no more than once a week, wear pastel shirts, and fight drug dealers like his heroes Crockett and Tubbs

2. No one in Miami reads the New Yorker

1. Pulitzer Prizes since 1991:
Miami Herald: 7
Star Tribune: 0

You have a real talent for this, Paul. Maybe you should have a weekly spot on the NARN on Saturdays. Great list today!

Nepotisim, they name is Anders Gyllenhaal...
