    There were layoffs at Gannett's military-oriented publications a couple weeks ago, too.

    It's sad when you read that and the first thought is, "well that's not as bad as it could be."

    Wait a minute. You mean those verticals, blue balls and passion topics didn't do much good either?

    Is this a NEW round, just today? (Well, I guess it is the first of the month.)

    I'm hearing there are layoffs at the Arizona Republic. Don't know any details.

    I recently applied for a position at one of the pagination hubs. Wonder if those positions are being frozen?

    Romenesko source on the Republic: “A pretty substantial round of layoffs.”

    28-year nationally syndicated cartoonist Joe Heller out of Green Bay is slashed.

    It kind of amazes me that there are ANY newspaper cartoonists left.

    One of my best friends was one of them. I really, really hate Gannett right now.
