A lady now heads "The Gray Lady"

I actually think it's pretty cool that a woman, Jill Abramson, is now the executive editor of the New York Times.  While they certainly included her gender in the plus column, it's more likely that her choice to head the paper has more to do with her experience with the electronic edition. 

Here's some commentary from the LA Times media column:

All Abramson has to do when she takes over from Bill Keller in September is manage one of the world's most prestigious newsrooms under a tight budget, urge a tradition-bound print institution toward a digital future and make a compelling case for the enduring value of the authoritative, literate voice in an era when anyone with a high-speed connection has become a publisher.
