What I wouldn't mind seeing if it happened my way: Names, areas of responsibility, and years with Gannett. I'm mostly interested in those at the Corporate Tower.
Of course, I'm referring to this: Today, the board of directors named longtime Gannett executive Robert Dickey (left) as the new president of the newspaper division, re-branded as U.S. Community Publishing. That puts him snugly in the executive suite at McLean, Va. -- and queued up as a likely successor to Chairman and CEO Craig Dubow.

Now, we might as well get this out of the way. It's that name: Dickey. Big, big problem for your's truly when it comes to writing posts and heds. (Exhibit A, above.) I'm sure he suffered cruel needling as a kid. But it's really hard to blog when Dickey keeps popping up. (OMG!!! See what I mean?!)
But now, seriously: No jokes, comments or criticisms that play off the guy's last name. It's boring already -- and it hasn't even started. I'd like to avoid spiking a lot of otherwise good comments.
