No matter the role, Mr. Gelb, a gangly 6-foot-2, was relentless, fidgety and in-your-face — whether in passionate response to a potential scoop or in fevered reaction to the whim of a fellow boss, typically the equally relentless A. M. Rosenthal, who had been two years his senior at City College and perpetually a step ahead of him in the Times hierarchy, finally reaching the newsroom’s top post, executive editor.
瘦高的蓋爾布——身高6英尺2英寸（約1 米88）——無論擔任哪個角色都不知疲倦、躁動不安、咄咄逼人，熱情洋溢地回應可能挖到的猛料時如此，對其他管理層成員的突發奇想做出激烈反應時也是如 此。那些突發奇想的念頭常常來自同樣不知疲倦的A·M·羅森索(A. M. Rosenthal)。羅森索在紐約城市學院(City College)就讀時比蓋爾布高兩級，之後在時報的管理層級上也總是領先一步。羅森索最終擔任了主編，這是新聞編輯部的最高職務。
Quotation of the Day: "It may be better to wait and see, but waiting doesn’t make you money. It’s ‘Let me do a little snip of tissue’ and then they get professional, lab and facility fees. Each patient is like an ATM machine." — Jean Mitchell, a professor of health economics at Georgetown University, on procedures in American health care.
