2006_03_arts_napkin.jpgHaving trouble reading that napkin over there? Allow us to translate: Doug Simmons, managing editor of the Village Voice, has been fired over the Nick Sylvester incident.

Simmons had stated after the fabricated story came out that "It would break my heart to fire him [Sylvester]." Unfortunately for Simmons, his bosses aren't as compassionate. We're guessing this means Sylvester's "suspension" has turned in to a firing as well.
