Back in March 2008, when Marty Baron revamped the leadership of the Globe's newsroom following some high-profile departures, he tapped Ellen Clegg as the paper's deputy managing editor for news operations.
Now Clegg is leaving for a post at the Broad Institute. Baron's memo follows; the first line suggests that he's taking her exit pretty hard.
When I read today's Globe story on the State House memorial for George Keverian, I was struck by how the paper did and didn't describe Keverian's ancestry--and I'm guessing a few other readers were, too. Keverian, the Globe noted, was "[t]he son of Armenian immigrants who had fled systematic killing in Turkey...."
As you've probably guessed, the missing word was "genocide."
