    Uncle Dean says there are no plans to do this, even though it's been done in SoCal and NoCal to pathetic results.

    Uncle Dean says it was also "irresponsible" for the union to put out the press release today.

    Let's see. Singleton called the union but it was not about cutting jobs. I wonder why else Singleton would call the union? What could he possibly be talking about?

    Might as well. Most of these papers are running skeleton staffs on the desks anyways.
