Room 9 bulletin:
Popular City Hall reporter Stephanie Gaskell is quitting her job with the New York Post to go cover the war in Iraq as a freelancer, she told me.
Gaskell, who covered Guantanamo Bay for the AP around 2002, is leaving on Friday night — missing the Inner Circle show! — and should be in Baghdad by Monday.
She’ll be embedded with the military for two or three months.
We all wish her extremely well.
