daily kaddish: another glass ceiling shattered

The Grey Lady—the newspaper that held out unconscionably long before accepting “Ms” into its lexicon, referring even to Gloria Steinem herself as “Miss”—has for the first time in its 160-year history named a woman to its top editorial post.

Well, hallelujah, and it’s about damned time, and “Mazel tov!” to Ms Abramson.
