McGrory's Raines column runs. Today's Globe contains the Brian McGrory column that had reportedly been killed earlier in the week about Howell Raines, Jayson Blair, and Mike Barnicle. Or, at least, this is a version of it; who knows what got changed?
McGrory, an Irish-American who was promoted to fill the slot of another Irish-American, is very, very concerned about the perils of diversity. That said, it's not a bad column -- he worries, rightly, that this whole affair will be used to discredit African-American journalists.
