Wall Street Journal’s lobby chandelier is coming down

Wall Street Journal deputy editor in chief Matt Murray told staffers today that the Journal’s low-hanging chandelier will come down once they figure out how. “It seems that it’s an antique and that complicates things,” says my tipster.

The reader who sent me the chandelier photo last March says today that “it was definitely a Lex thing” — referring to recently ousted CEO Lex Fenwick — “although he obviously didn’t get to keep it as part of his severance package!”

The chandelier, by the way, has 724 followers on Twitter.
