"Ideas" makes the cut

In my recent piece on looming cutbacks at the Globe, I noted that the paper's "Ideas" section was reportedly set for elimination. But a Globe staffer informs me that, since I did my reporting, management has decided *not* to kill "Ideas" after all.

To my mind, the death of "Ideas" wouldn't have been a loss if (as I proposed a few weeks back) the paper made intellectual affairs a staple elsewhere in the paper. But if that wasn't a possibility--and I have no reason to think it was--the survival of "Ideas" has to be considered good news.

Also on the Globe front: Dan Kennedy reports that the elimination of the City Weekly and NorthWest sections is now a done deal.
