Change is always confusing and traumatic, and the downside of DC’s relatively stable structure is we may handle change more creakily than some other places. Listen to the noise out there, and any change is always the tip of some iceberg-size contortion, analyzed with all the joy of a pack of old Kremlinologists. Most of the time, though, it ain’t so complex.
Now before you decide that Paul Levitz reads Journalista (although it wouldn’t surprise us) we’ve been using “Kremlinology” for YEARS now, although the search function is messed up right now so we can’t find an actual link. Anyway, we call dibs!
