The Observer’s John Koblin crashed the saddest media party ever over the weekend, the dance wake for the Times’ Metro section (which the paper killed on Monday) at editor Joe Sexton’s house. “At a certain point in the living room, Mr. Sexton presided over a dance party — mostly hip-hop,” Koblin writes. “He spent a good amount of time dancing,” said a staffer present. “He’s able to lose himself — for a guy who’s under so much pressure, he can lose himself admirably.” [NYO]
