Not on Keller's agenda. You wouldn't expect a blogger as savvy as InstaPundit Glenn Reynolds to make a rookie mistake, but he does today. After blasting a column by the New York Times' Nicholas Kristof, he asks, "I wonder if Bill Keller will exercise some adult supervision."

I wonder how Reynolds made it this far without knowing that the editorial and op-ed pages are under the control of editorial-page editor Gail Collins -- who, in turn, reports directly to publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr.

After all, the opinion pages' isolation from the news operation is one of the reasons that Howell Raines was treated with such suspicion when he was promoted from editorial-page editor to executive editor.
