Ex-LA Weekly editor Laurie Ochoa still believes in print and has started her own alternative paper, damn it. It's a quarterly (for now) called Slake. And needless to say her husband, food critic Jonathan Gold, is in the first issue.

Big news: Conde Nast is not replacing exiting Vogue group publisher Tom Florio, who is leaving after 25 years with the company. Instead the publishers of Vogue, Teen Vogue and Conde Nast Traveler will report to Conde Nast President-CEO Chuck Townsend. Florio just wants to do his own thing. Uh, right.

My favorite Baltimore native, John Waters, who attended my wedding to David Chute lo these many years ago, enters the bestseller list with his book Role Models at number 11. Congrats John.
