Tunku Varadarajan, the op-ed editor of the Wall Street Journal, is leaving the free-market oriented editorial page for a job in the news section. The paper famously has maintained a strict separation between its news and editorial sides, a division some have likened to a separation of “church and state” or a bank’s “Chinese Wall” (except, you know, one that works). There’s no word yet on the reasons for Varadarajan’s move. Maybe its just that he kept having trouble finding the editorial page in the newly miniature version of the paper.
