Times Picks Tierney

Today the Times announced that John Tierney will be replacing Safire on the Op-Ed page. Tierney, who formerly wrote the "Big City" column, was identified last September by Slate as one of the leading candidates for Safire's spot. He is a libertarian, which brings the grand total of Times Op-Ed columnists who aren't card-carrying liberals to two. Which still probably gives them a better liberal::non-liberal ratio than Dartmouth.
