Lacey on Lacey: ``I am constantly being force-fed some quote that I started the paper because what the hell, I wanted to punch somebody in the head. It was the antiwar impetus that began all of this. But by dumb luck, dumb Irish luck, I stumbled into something that allowed me to vent all of that anger and curiosity and feeling that there wasn't a square deal for people."
Lacey on management: ``If you're the editor [of a New Times paper], it's a complete principality that you rule. I set the level of expectation out there, and I give them all the money they can spend.... We are constantly trying to add people, to find better people. We have budgets, but we don't have budgets."
Lacey on being successful and alternative: ``If they think making money is bad, then I'm gonna burn in hell. It allows us to do better journalism. It allows our reporters to raise their families. The fact is we weren't as good when we didn't have the resources to do what we do."###
If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet
it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags
early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags
logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
