Time drops Kristol, Krauthammer.

Starting next month, neither “William Kristol nor longtime contributor Charles Krauthammer will be on contract” at Time magazine as columnists. Time said the decision to cut ties with Kristol was “mutual,” and Krauthammer responded only that he has “a lot of things that occupy me.” The New York Observer reports, however, that Time is “in negotiations with National Review editor Ramesh Ponnuru to sign him to a contributor contract.”
