SUCCESS-- Another publishing story, this time Seth Lipsky's. He grew up in Brooklyn, wrote for his home town daily, went to Harvard writing as a stringer for Time magazine. He covered Isreal's six-day war in 1967 and Chicago's Democratic convention in 1968. He was drafted into Vietnam and eventually wrote for the military paper there.
Later Lipsky took his skills and his courage to the editor's desk, turning the Forward into a national Jewish daily paper. He worked as an editor a few other places without much fanfare but is now going into the NY City daily paper market with a conservative broadsheet. He is starting the New York Daily Sun this spring and looks to have some solid financial backing and some guts to take on that market.
This is the kind of story that makes me excited.
I wish Lipsky the best of luck.
