Other People Doing Our Job for Us: Gray Lady Edition

So, you were thinking we at Dadwagon were shirking because we’d ignored all the father-son stories floating around the news the past few days? Not quite. We just outsourced the blogging to a minor subsidiary known as the New York Times Motherlode blog, which—after a few prods from here at HQ—got on the case today, taking on the Madoff suicide, the alleged Columbia drug dealers and the Soho House murder. Check it out, and let us know if you think we should spin this Motherlode off in a massive IPO. We’d be up for it.
