In a very nice essay, David Kamp bids Carter farewell.
The rumors, of course, are that this isn't an isolated thing, but part of something much bigger.
I'm young enough that I can't even remember a time when Carter wasn't at Vanity Fair.
I certainly don't remember him being at Spy, though I never followed Spy.
It's a shame, and quite a loss for Vanity Fair, but good on Carter, who certainly deserves a break by now.
Meanwhile, Silvia Killingsworth is ready with quite a strong list of worthy replacements.
