Too much change! It scares me! First they went and got rid of all Robert Wilonsky’s cute names for blogs (Unfair Park is now just “news,” City of Ate has become “restaurants”), and now the Observer has gone and lost its editor, Joe Tone. Here’s his announcement. He’s got a book project to focus on. So bully for him.

Now then. This gives us an opportunity to check in with Vegas for the odds on his replacement. Here’s what’s on the board:

Eric Celeste 2:1
Laura Miller 10:1
Patrick Williams 15:1
Zac Crain 100:1
Sam Merten 10,000:1
Robert Wilonsky 15,000:1
Philip Kingston 20:1
Jennifer Chininis 50:1
Mark Donald 2.5:1
Jim Schutze 1.5:1
Carlton Stowers 8:1
Cristina Daglas 500:1
Some young kid from some other Village Voice paper, like Phoenix, so they don’t have to pay him or her all that much to manage the decline of that paper as it stops printing altogether and goes strictly online: even money
