'Administrative leave' isn't a good thing

Courtesy of loyal blog reader Free Voice, we learn today that The Auburn Plainsman has finally figured out what happened to Auburn University's missing agriculture dean. As it turns out, he's on administrative leave pending the outcome of an internal investigation, which is about as scary of a prospect as it sounds.

One final note: The Plainsman reporter's job title is "content editor." Anyone care to tell me what that would entail?

The position of "Content Editor" has not existed at the Plainsman until this academic year; the position is currently held by the Editor from last year.

As I used to work at the Plainsman, with the current Editor and Content Editor, some may see it as a conflict of interest for me to comment further, but this quote from a classmate might reverberate with what you noticed:
"Isn't it the Editor's main purpose to be in charge of the content?"

"News editor" would have been much more descriptive, with the added advantage of sounding less made-up.
