The St. Petersburg Times had an article in yesterday's (12/31/2009) paper titled "Donors call for Greer's ouster." This was nothing particularly - though the agitating of donors, including Republican uber-donor and sometime king-maker Mel Sembler is big news.
No, what struck my eye was the placement of the article. It was in the obituary section. It was the only news article (as opposed to an obit) on the page. If one were being glib - and I am - one could say that the St. Pete Times had indeed printed Greer's obituary. The passing of his chairmanship is not likely to be mourned.
