NEW YORK (AP) — -- New York Times Executive Editor Howell Raines and Managing Editor Gerald Boyd resigned Thursday in the wake of the journalistic fraud scandal involving reporter Jayson Blair.

The Times said Joseph Lelyveld, a former executive editor of the Times, had been named interim executive editor. The paper said no one would be named interim managing editor.

I guess it was the Howell-O-Meter.

Now, has someone scheduled a time for the orgy of self-recrimination? I would hate to miss it, and I have a moment free on Monday.
