William Safire Leaving NYTimes for Dana Foundation

Email This Entry

Posted by Zack Lynch

William Safire, the insightful New York Times Op-Ed, will end his regular column in early 2005, a Times spokeswoman said Monday. Safire will turn 75 next month, and plans to devote more time to The Dana Foundation, a non-profit organization active in neuroscience research, the arts, and education. Among the many notable contributions Safire made over the five decades as a reporter was his recent coining of the term "neuroethics."

"That (Dana) is the main reason to leave the column," Safire told E&P by phone from his Washington, D.C., office Monday. "I want to have another run at something new." If there is anyone who sees where neurotechnology is headed it is Safire. Time to give him a call.

The NYT has lost a giant. It will be interesting to see if they replace him with a rightie, and if so...who?
