The Usual Suspects passed us the following note in homeroom recently:

Word is that a high-level staffer is departing the Mayor's office. But since none of the Real Media have confirmed anything, we won't name names, because we're too chicken to do so. But stay tuned - we'll post links as soon as some reporters and editors agree it's worth running with...

But who, you ask? Well, according to San Francisco Sentinel (An aside: really, Pat? Two images of yourself in the same post?):

[Yesterday] all tongues in the chattering class clacked that Phil Ginsburg, chief-of-staff for the Newsom administration, was about to be replaced by [senior staffer Wade] Crowfoot himself.

All of this, of course, is speculation and wildly untrue. But still, it almost borders on mildly exciting.
