Rosa Brooks’ final column for the LA Times is dedicated to making the case for more public support for journalism (which I think I would support, but I don’t really see as necessary either) but also includes some news of its own: “After four years, I’ll soon be starting a stint at the Pentagon as an advisor to the undersecretary of Defense for policy.”

She was one of my favorite columnists, but it’s probably more important to give people running the military-industrial complex than to have them writing newspaper columns, so I’ll count this as change for the better.
