Of all the changes occurring at the Minneapolis Star Tribune, none is likely to be healthier than the departure of Jim Boyd, deputy editor of the editorial page. Boyd is taking a buy-out.

It’s not likely that the editorial stance of the paper will change much in Boyd’s absence. But its intellectual honesty quotient surely will.
