The City Paper‘s “Mr. Wrong” columnist and creative director Joe MacLeod has had a thrilling couple weeks. After 25 years with the paper, MacLeod was fired without a severance package by City Paper‘s recent owners Times-Shamrock on the heels of MacLeod’s attempt to publish a profanity-ridden installment of his column.
After all that, City Paper‘s new owners the Baltimore Sun rehired MacLeod as a freelancer and are even paying him $50 more for each column.
That’s according to today’s installment of “Mr. Wrong,” which takes a decidedly optimistic attitude toward the paper’s future under The Sun‘s stewardship. “If you like to read City Paper, keep reading it,” he writes, “and you’ll see soon enough which way the paper is going. If you hate to read City Paper, go ahead and Hate On, because it’s still here, every week, but hey, thank you for reading.”
