    Wow, that's a leader talking.
    Almost makes me wish I was 22 and willing to work for $20,000 a year.

    I can tell what isn't the answer - cramming all your text into a tee-tiny island surrounded by an ocean of white space.

    "In other words, burn the field to the ground so it can grow back healthier. To focus entirely on local news requires an entirely different culture—fast-paced, aggressive, ambitious, and competitive. Young, inexpensive talent is the key, people who know how to work and people who know how to write."

    wow. did bob jelloneck leave the board and contribute to that piece?

    interpretation: slash and burn and stick it up anyone's ass with experience or a dedication to quality.

    Current management should be lined up before a firing squad -- but you knew that.

    But this guy's a cluck. Take it local, and offer wages only the youngest -- and
    older knuckledragging morons -- would accept. Yes . . . make it The Trentonian
    of Dallas. Good idea -- not.

    I don't know if this would save the DMN, but it would save the sports department. Put Mike Fannin in charge.

    C'mon, Jason. You want all newspaper editors to read the part about turning overpaid (sports) columnists into reporters? Surely, you plan to edit that part out first.
