Kristol’s Times Replacement Chosen

The New York Times op-ed page has tapped the frighteningly talented Ross Douthat to replace the, well, frightening Bill Kristol. The Columbia Journalism Review’s blog reprints a memo saying that Douthat will join The Times in April and take over a Monday column opposite Paul Krugman. Douthat is the author, with Reihan Salam, of Grand New Party. His writing focuses often on politics, religion, and the movies.
