In case you haven't heard the news. . .
Name of the New York City Chancellor who resigned: Joel Klein
Job he's going to take: Executive vice-president for News Corp
His replacement: Cathie Black, a publishing executive/ oligarch
Process by which she was chosen: A public search was conducted, in some public somewhere. Gotham Schools says they know nothing of this.
Black's experience with education: Zero, except her own children were educated at Connecticut boarding schools and she sits on the board of an NYC charter school.
My reaction: Sarah Palin is starting to look reeaaally qualified.
So much for Bloomberg's being subtle about what his real agenda is.
UPDATE I: For Dana Goldstein's thoughts, go here.
