Is it such a chore?

Well, Ken Whyte grudgingly wrote an Editor's column in Maclean's this week (a month since assuming the chair) and then threw in a paragraph saying not to get used to it.

NOTE: This is the first editorial I've written since my appointment to Maclean's several weeks ago. I don't expect to use this column regularly. I hold publishing as well as editing duties at the magazine, and my schedule, as things stand, can't accommodate a weekly writing assignment. Meanwhile, we will keep you abreast of developments at Maclean's through Behind the Scenes, and use this space to bring you more of the original reportage that has always been the backbone of the magazine.

Is this really the message he wants to send to readers? That the Editor is too busy and doesn't have time to write 600 words a week? Or doesn't have anything to say? And that the space would better be used for something else? Egad.
