    Same (knowing someone there). It's a bad, bad situation.

    Several years ago, The Bee had arguably the best NBA coverage in the country. Now, the section is an embarrassment. There are still very good writers and editors there, but when you see a staff cut by about two-thirds, it's just a given that the paper is going to suck. McClatchy gets 100 percent of the blame for that.

    I don't remember where the Bee's other columnist went. He used to do a lot of work for ESPN.com, but I don't think I've seen his byline in a few years.

    Mark Kreidler? I think he has written a couple of books and is contributing elsewhere, maybe including espn.com

    Kreidler is very good. I just preferred Voisin. One of the former Bee sports columnists is now the mayor's spokesperson.

    I believe that is Bob Graswich.

    I think he went by R.E. Graswich, but that's him. He was attacked by Ralph Sampson for something he wrote about 20 years ago. Hell of a columnist...

    Perhaps this will give you more clarity: http://www.kansascity.com/2011/05/02/2843357/star-announces-layoffs.html
    Just announced a second round of layoffs this year and The Star's fifth round in the last year and a half.
