    I pray for the day that some middle-management executive dumbass loses his job to a guy in India.

    This is the most interesting part:

    So the moddys will be in India too? That's not a production function, that's really an editorial function. This will not end well.

    Not endorsing the idea, but this isn't a new trend. I recall the Columbus Dispatch started doing this a few years ago. I believe the San Jose Mercury News does it now as well. If newspapers could realistically outsource their copy desks to India and Singapore, they probably would.

    Well, fuck. No one told me.
    What's the cost of living like over there? Can I still wear my cool shoes? Can I get the Nats on DirecTV?

    And when the domestic consumer economy crashes and burns, the certifiable morons will wonder why.

    Cost of living: good. Nats: no. Moddy-like shoes: boy, are you in luck. Everyone wears 'em there!

    Yes! But don't be surprised if it tastes like chicken.

    No more making fun of cows in the comment sections of Web sites.
