Washington Post's TV writer Tom Shales "says he's probably going to leave the paper when his contract expires" in Dec. Shales: "I'm just older than just about everyone in Style. It's just weird, but I'm the last of the institutional memory, at least in the Style section. I can't imagine those people being sentimental about me leaving" (Beaujon, TBD.com, 10/21).
