Quo vadis, Metro?
Good thing I didn’t get that copy-editing job there in 2004. The interview was fun though — it was a friendly small office then and I got to proof that night’s issue. Not only do such people at dailies lose the privilege of having a life but I read here that so many bad things happened afterwards: complete turnover of staff, trying to be hip (better to have my stable, unpretentious small-town paper) and a year later that job was made redundant as everything was centralised in another city.
