NYT's Politiculture Wag Nabs Cable Gig

Man, I just don't have that Variety headline magic. Anyway, the NY Times's 59-year-old Frank Rich is gonna be HBO's creative consultant. Initial reaction: Ur, wha?

From HBO honcho Richard Plelpler (via Nikki Finke):
"When you look at what Frank has done, and his sui generis talent, and his many relationships in the creative community, he has a very, very good instinct for quality."
I had a boss once who used the term sui generis. He took a lot of long lunches and liked to know what people were thinking about him.
