    A friend and former colleague had his position eliminated (photo department). Any others?

    Heard there were 30 people that got the boot this week.

    Pipeline - please check in.
  4. This shouldn't be happening, considering the Times is owned by The Next Messiah.

    Apparently, his Messianic duties don't encompass putting out a viable product immune to economic downswings, Fen.

    Funny, you'd think that was part of the job description...

    True. 30. One writer in sports - Jon Siegel. Known him for ages. Good, good guy. Haven't read much of their stuff lately so I can't comment there but when I was reading it regularly, he was good.

    Even if it's owned by a bunch of crackpots, the sports section puts out good work. And that paper's softball team, the sons of bitches they are, are much better than they look when they take the field.

    I agree on the Sports staff. Little bit of an underdog mentality that I like and I haven't met a single person there who didn't work his/her ass off. They do very good stuff. I wonder sometimes if anyone is reading it, though, in the D.C. area. The Post casts a big, big shadow. But those guys can play in the big leagues.

    what if the 30 employees married off?

    could they then just cut 15 jobs?
