Award-winning political writer and columnist Jim DeFede has resigned from Miami New Times, the Daily Business Review reports. DeFede, who has been at the paper for more than 10 years and says "(i)t was a great place to work," plans to write a book about the diversion of commercial air traffic to Newfoundland on Sept. 11. Local journalist Ed Wasserman says, “[DeFede] electrified municipal coverage in this town. He was simply the best I’ve seen in my 20-some years here.”
