    I believe they have somewhere around 200 total in editorial, so you do the math.


    The great news just keeps rolling in.

    I know quite a few people there.

    This is particularly sad for me.

    Awful. I have some friends there, including one of my best friends in this business (and one of THE best in the business).

    Doesn't bode well for the guys they have covering Browns/Bengals/Reds/Indians/Cavs, though I'm not sure exactly what they're doing in those departments these days.

    Tractor, nice sig ...

    Also, if I read:

    "These are challenging times for many industries, including the newspaper industry,"

    ... one more time, I'm going to puke. Also, the "it's getting dusty in here" thing. Sorry, pet peeves.
