Wow. David Carr’s cover story about Ruth Shalit (“Goodbye to All That,” 4/9) was fascinating and brilliantly written. I hate him. Or should I quote Ruth Shalit quoting Oscar Wilde saying a part of you dies when a friend (make that colleague) succeeds? I write about the media for American Journalism Review and I only wish I had done the Ruth Shalit story and can only hope to have done it as well.
