For John, BLUF: Some bosses are troublesome. Just saying. Nothing to see here; just move along.
In reading a story about the departure of Ms Jill A from The New York Times, in The New York Times, by Mr David Carr, I came across what Mr Cobb said was a favorite word of Ms Abramson:
tsorisSpelled "tsuris" in my computer's dictionary, it is from the Hebrew and it means "trouble or woe; aggravation."
So "tsoris" (tso͝oris) is the word of the day.
Yes, as Professor Althouse says, Ms Abramson was fired, per the NYT, for being a B----. Apparently women have not yet earned the right to be tough, difficult bosses. The other explanation for the firing is that The Times was not paying her what it had been paying men to do the same work and she challenged them on it, which would also make her a B----.♠

♠ Best Althouse line—"Liberals retreat to the position right-wingers always take, the high ground of meritocracy and individualism." I am sure she meant "Progressives".
