The Boston Daily Blog has posted an interview with Weekly Dig publisher Jeff Lawrence about last week’s mysterious removal of Dig editor Michael Brodeur. “Michael is a phenomenal writer. He’s not an editor,” Lawrence is quoted as saying.

I don’t know Brodeur, and I don’t know what constraints he might have been working under. But I do think the Dig has lacked some of its customary panache since the previous editor, Joe Keohane, departed for Boston Magazine (yes, home of the Boston Daily Blog) earlier this year.
