There's a reason why you haven't heard much about the Brooke Astor trial in recent weeks, according to the New York Times' A.G.

After two years as a reporter at the Portland Oregonian, Arthur Gregg Sulzberger III will return to New York to work at his family's Times, Portland alternative paper Williamette Week is reporting.
