And by new friend I mean a new writer, a honeymoon period of approximately ten minutes and a 90% chance of loathing thereafter. But let's stay optimistic; maybe she'll be the next Caity Weaver.
Capital just reported that Allie Jones of Atlantic Media's The Wire is leaving her post to start writing for us in a little over a week. A quick look at her recent articles provides the standard snarky-lite fare that you'd expect at The Atlantic's trying-to-be-hip cabana, but I have a feeling that will get ratcheted up pretty quickly. She doesn't like 300 sandwiches lady, so she's at least starting on a high note.
Welcome to Gawker, Allie!
