Bill is a superb editor -- one who listens carefully to sources and subordinates alike, acts decisively, stands up for his reporters and subeditors and writes beautifully. He gives thoughtful advice. And he has a backbone of steel.

He is not jut a first-rate leader, but a guy you would love to have as your brother.

The awful problems of our criminal justice system will get the kind of solid examination that has long been needed thanks to Barsky hiring Bill.

Just curious -- Why is there only one woman quoted here, and she never worked at the Times?

Gail, it wasn't through lack of trying. I reached out to SEVERAL female Times' staffers without success.
