A byline from a New York Times article on The Metro Section cover:<p>This article was reported by Kevin Flynn, Michelle O'Donnell and Stacy Albin and written by Mr. Flynn. <p>Is this a new procedure? Seems cumbersome to me.

I've seen it on other Times articles -- I think it's fallout from the Bragg brouhaha, intended to make it more clear who had what to do with a story. But it does clutter things up, and I'm sure readers don't give a fig.
