Worth noting: NYTimes publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. is proposing to add his brother-in-law to the paper’s board of directors. That would be Steven B. Green, an investor. (And presumably, not the Steven B. Green who is the author of a book called “Assholeology.”)

- The New York Times Company announced on Thursday that it would nominate Steven B. Green to the company’s board.
If elected, Mr. Green, would succeed Lynn G. Dolnick, 60, who has been a director since 2005 and is retiring. Mr. Green, 47, is general partner of Ordinance Capital L.P., a Florida-based investment firm.
In a statement, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., chairman and chief executive of The New York Times, said he was delighted to have Mr. Green nominated to the board. “Steven, who is married to my sister Cindy, a fourth-generation member of the Ochs/Sulzberger family, brings a superb understanding of complex financial issues and a deep appreciation of our company’s historic mission and long-term business objectives.”
The other 10 directors will stand for re-election at the company’s annual shareholder meeting on April 25.
