If You Thought the Cheers in the Newsroom When She Got Out of Jail Were Loud . . . . 

. . . you ain't heard nothin' yet:
New York Times reporter Judith Miller, who went to jail for refusing to reveal her source during an investigation into the 2003 outing of a CIA operative, has retired from "the old gray lady," the newspaper announced Wednesday.

Her retirement takes effect immediately, according to the statement.
The money quote: "I AM BECOME DEATH." No, wait, that was J. Robert Oppenheimer, who had a conscience. Hold on -- we know it's here somewhere . . . aha! "I have become the news, something a New York Times reporter never wants to be."

No word yet on whether the Times has agreed to publish the self-exculpatory op/ed Miss Run Amok reportedly hoped to negotiate as part of her settlement package.
