    30 pages, unequivocally, is nuts.

    Ask Idaho. He's always bragging about his tight tush.
  4. 69...take a chill.

    I was giving some color and I worked there...it's my perspective. The thread is about the demise of the section/paper. There are terribly creative and talented people who will be or are already losing their jobs...and that's sad.

    Your perspective is noted.

    I'm more of a rubber-necker on this DMN deal, but I must admit that my curiosity is getting the best of me.

    Do we have details as of yet regarding what people are being offered? It is a straight across the board deal? Is it everybody or just selected personnel?

    Agreed. The good stuff gets lost in the crowd.
  7. According to one of the local blogs, it's selective but on a large scale. Almost everybody in the newsroom got a buyout packet. For example, all the Metro side columnists (a mostly tepid bunch) got one, but two sports columnists did not. Guessing, but gotta be Cowlishaw and Blackistone, their two most high-profile columnists. Word is they want out anyway, so it looks like DMN doesn't want to pay them to leave.
