Anybody need to say anything else here?

Looks like this round is pretty much done. I'll continue to check for comments and emails but not with the same frequency. If the bosses are right, we have about 16 months until the next round unless there is a miraculous turnaround in the economy and the fate of the daily newspaper. Hope springs eternal.

Spartacus out.

{Well, maybe not quite yet. Comment here says two more were axed today. Departments? Some additional positions suggested in the jobs thread this morning, also. I will stay attentive as long as there is traffic}


  1. At least two more folks cut today (Monday), who were not in the office last week.

  2. What department(s)? Looked like there was one Metro Reporter not accounted for by Friday. Was that one of them? If so, where else?

  3. I saw one person saying goodbye to a couple of co-workers this morning. Can't say much without revealing who it is, except that this person was a metro reporter who was out of town last week and was informed just this morning. Very upsetting, and I've probably said too much.

  4. Does anyone know how many of the eliminated positions are still unaccounted for? I've heard there's at least one more still to come.
