This is an even bigger deal that it looks to be. Lane, along with Harvey Mars and Anne Saul are the Three Amigos who rolled out the video plan across newspaper newsrooms (back when they were still called newsrooms). Now, 2.5 years after that rollout they are all gone.

Harvey Mars is gone! I don't know how he has survived all of these years doing nothing but drawing a paycheck. I always suspected he had pictures of somebody in a safety deposit box somewhere.
