Another sad day in the newspaper industry

My workplace laid off 26 people today. Most of them were seasoned employees and I knew alot of them personally. Good people, from Experienced HR staff to newer but indispensible ones like the IT guy I called on 3-5 times per week to help me out of a computer quandary, to the videographer who videos my top client regularly.

It's going to be different place to work. When will this bloody economy turn around!?

Today. Really. Sucked.

I hope the paper stays afloat. I'm still in mourning, 18 months later, about the demise of the Rocky Mountain News. :-(

Good luck to you and your co-newsers.
