We first heard about the possible changing of the guard last night from solid sources who passed it along like a briefcase full of black market uranium.
What follows is a rollicking tale of denials, confessions, and rote PR statements. And most importantly, the news that some anonymous sous-chef will be cooking dinner tonight at Le Bec Fin. [Foobooz]
