Annals of Loyalty

Top item in Romenesko last night was about the editor of a money-losing magazine called Fast Company, a guy named John Byrne. This dedicated guy, loyal to his staff, just persuaded a rich sap named Joe Mansueto to sink in a few million bucks and save the magazine.

Well, Romenesko says the dedicated, loyal John Byrne just told Mansueto -- who saved his bacon about five minutes ago -- to drop dead. Byrne has taken a nice, safe job at Business Week.

Wow. I don't want to use the "R" word in two consecutive items, but all I can say is that this has been a D-Con kinda night.
