Luciana Lopez is leaving her position as music editor of Portland's only (last?) daily paper. The Oregonian music writer will be moving to Sao Paulo to cover Brazilian economics for Reuters, a path followed by countless music editors in this town. Okay, maybe not.

I always thought Lopez did a great job balancing pieces she probably wanted to write, and those she probably had to write. No word if the O will be replacing Lopez, or just relying on freelancers to fill their dwindling page count for arts coverage.

Now it's just you and me, Jarman. Two will enter, but only one will leave.
