On the first of this month, genial New Yorker writer Dan Baum quietly finished his New Orleans Journal for the magazine's website, and announced that he and his wife, writer Margaret Knox—with whom he collaborates on nearly all of his written work—would be leaving the city and returning home to Denver. What Baum didn't announce was that these may be the last words he'll be writing for the New Yorker, as David Remnick has decided not to renew his contract.
