Rob Borsellino Looks At An Editor Who is the Real Thing & Laments The Des Moines Register's loss
No, Richard Tapscott is not my brother. That was a question I was often asked during the years he was at The Washington Post. Given our common last name, however, odds are good we are 12th cousins or something.
Anyway, Richard is leaving The Des Moines Register where he ran the newsroom for several years for a job in Delaware in order to be closer to his kids in the Washington area. That's bad news for the Register, good news for a bunch of readers in Delaware. Register columnist Rob Borsellino explains why here.
