    And to think that just a few years ago, Tribune Co was the chain where everybody wanted to work...
  4. And to think, this used to be an industry.
    Now it's an investment.

    12 years ago, I received 21 percent of my base as my year-end company stock disbursement.

    Now, I'll be lucky to get 2.

    Hell, I'll be lucky to have a job and get zero.

    Funny you mention that. About an hour ago on CNBC (I think) there was an investment segement devoted to how investors could make money off the death of newspapers.

    We are nothing more than carrion for these vile vultures to feast on.

    Interesting. How can we make money off the death of industry so we don't end up working at Whattaburger?

    Got to love this from laobserved.com:

    As an extra Zellutation to the community, the Times is doing away with public tours of the building. The position of guide Darrell Kunitomi (who has more than a dozen TV and film credits) is being eliminated, sources say.

    What, they don't want to parade gawkers through the newsroom to see the carnage? Or are they afraid old crazy Sammy Z. might be visiting town and pop out from around a corner, his shirt half unbuttoned, smacking his lips over all the p---y ads while telling some photographer to f--- herself?

    I see Robyn Norwood on the list.
    Not happy about that. I'm a huge fan.
    As a person. As a journalist. Hope she has something ready to go.

    These things always leave me with mixed emotions.

    There were a few names I feared seeing on there. Most weren't. One was.

    Just sucks.

    Though to be fair . . .I'm sure they get a better buyout than the one Singleton people are getting. Maybe not by much . . . .

    Here's the details on that: http://www.laobserved.com/archive/2008/02/times_buyout_offers_come.php

    Hell, the Times' minimum is as much as LANG's maximum.
