    I couldn't understand the lede.

    That doesn't really surprise me, come to think of it.

    I think what it means is that if I am lucky, my grandkids are going to get the $700 bucks these a-holes owe me.

    What a weak, muddled story.

    It says nothing, except that Tribune's $13 billion deal was risky in a bad economy.

    Well, duh...

    It explains nothing about how, exactly, it was accomplished, nothing about how, exactly, it affects anyone, or their retirement funds, or their futures, or how, exactly, the situation could be resolved or how any problems should be solved.

    How about a response from the group of former employees that's got a lawsuit pending as a result of this deal? What are the next legal maneuvers to be, if any? What recourse is available, if any, to an employees or former employees whose money may be tied up in this deal? Is their money tied up in this deal?

    Explanatory journalism at its finest this was not, that's for sure. Indeed, it was barely understandable, and said, essentially, nothing that anybody doesn't already know.
