We dream of the day when our career changes warrant the coveted Drudge "FLASH":
UPDATE: Our own sources at TIME confirm Mikey's headed for their glossy pages. We'll miss him on page one of the Post (most recently a biting piece on Gitmo as Congressional tourist destination) but we look forward to his pieces on celebrity diets and JESUS: IS HE GOOD FOR YOUR BABY?
UPDATE: Raw Story has their own sources confirm Mike's out by Labor Day.
but follow it with some wishful thinking. They say Allen "will fill a post covering the White House once occupied by the now-well-known Matt Cooper, who revealed his source in a probe into the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame."
