Overheard on the ASNE floor

The elites stick together here. This morning we spotted Los Angeles Times Assistant Managing Editor Simon K.C. Li, New York Times Publisher Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr., and Boston Globe Editor Marty Baron chatting on the ASNE convention floor.

Were they enjoying the conference?

"This is ASNE," Sulzberger deadpanned.

Life can be hard at the top. Asked about the trio's next destination, Sulzberger looked to Baron for a cue.

"There's 'Managing Change: Overcoming the Fear Factor," Sulzberger said.

Baron laughed. "I've already overcome the fear factor."
