Help me understand the editor hierarchy at the magazine I write for. Every article I do for them seems to take a different path, with different editors contacting me about different things, but it's never consistnet. I can never figure out if I'm communicating with the right person. [more inside]

I need an editor (copy and content) for an edgy, non-traditional chapbook of poems. Word count is light -- around 4,000. Budget is nearly non-existent (this is an art project) but there would be some kind of honorarium attached. Can someone help me find a good, trusty editor?

I was hoping to be offered a writing job on the editorial side, but instead I'm going to be on the business/advertising side. What does this mean for me? [more inside]

Please help me find this editorial cartoon! It was published right after Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, and Michael Jackson died last year. The cartoon shows Johnny Carson at his desk and Ed McMahon sitting next to him in heaven, and Ed's telling Johnny that they're going to have a great show that night, since he brought Farrah Fawcett with him and Michael Jackson will be performing. (I'm paraphrasing) I can't remember the cartoonist or the paper - I saw it on a weekly cartoon roundup site originally, and my Google-fu is utterly failing.

What's the best way to get some buzz going on a web article my boss asked me to write? The higher ups want to get an established columnist/journalist in the US to publish it, or comment on it. I've posted the article on our corporate site (if you must know, it's a defense of outsourcing) - so what's a guy gotta do to get some column-inches for a pet issue in an actual newspaper?

What's an editorial plan? Do topic-focused weblogs (like the Gawker Media ones) have one? How do they work out what sort of content goes on their blog? [more inside]

Mark Leyner wrote a puff piece about the Women of CNN (or HNN) in the early/mid 90's. It ends with a really great thing about the world ending while he is soothed by their explaining it to him. I can't find it online. Anyone know this piece and what publication it ran in (and when)? Or--this would be swell--seen it reproduced somewhere online?

Sometime, say within the last 4 years, I read an editorial which answered the question of what accepted practice of our society would be viewed by future generations as morally reprehensible. The editorializer (who I believe was a person of some note) proposed incarceration as punishment for crime as an answer. Does anybody know who this was or where it appeared? [more inside]
