It's a Christmas miracle, everybody! Just weeks after his tragic layoff from the McClatchy newspaper chain, Latin America reporter Tyler Bridges has a new gig with the Washington Post's online PostGlobal thingy!!
When we last left our hero, he was busy constantly misspelling difficult faraway place-names like "Venice" and "Brazil." But he has now grown as a reporter, guys, and in his PostGlobal debut he only screws up real tough names like that of Brazil's president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. In all fairness, this is a very difficult and foreign-sounding name!! Anyway congratulations, Tyler!
Update--A reader corrects us: "I think you have Global Post (which really is just a collaborative effort of freelance reporters) confused with Post Global, which is the WaPo/Newsweek site. I know, I don't know how anyone could ever confuse those two. Bridges could only wish he was affiliated with something like Post Global right now, I think." So there you go.
