    She was a tool the moment she defended Mitch Albom for his carelessness and stupidity.

    If it's possible for me to think less of her, I do.

    She probably forgot to turn off the sig on her e-mail message. Is it a crime?

    No, that's not the crime here. That's something else.

    But if you're going to lecture a bunch of adults, who already know they're supposed to be focusing on journalism, who show up every day focusing on journalism, about focusing on journalism while the ax is falling around them, I'd think you'd proofread your e-mail to see if your name is listed twice -- and in different ways.

    It will be interesting and sad to see the next wave of cuts in San Jose, which is slowly being turned into the Daily News of Los Angeles. My friends in San Jose were not sorry to see the last editor flee to Cleveland. But the new one might be the same cold-blooded type. Come to think of it, I guess that is why she is there.

    Again, this is the Lean Dean M.O. Cut, cut and cut some more. Look at his Southern California holdings and what they were before he got his ax-wielding hands on them.

    No doubt that is true. Long Beach, way back when, was a real newspaper.

    I believe this is the article Mr. Petty referenced...


    If it's not, Tom, could you post the one your wife read?

    wow, thanks river. yes, that is the piece that made mrs. petty say, "wow." sad thing is, the piece doesn't address the "7-11 owners" (jrc, cnhi) who are really messing things up.

    San Gabriel wasn't bad either. San Bernardino had decent writers. Ontario was better than it is today.
    It's turned into a joke.

    Holy shit, dude, 60 people are going to lose their jobs, and you're focused on this.

    She signed her name. Below that was her auto e-mail signature. Lots of people have them.

    Thus begins and ends the only defense of Carole Leigh Carole Leigh Hutton you're likely to see.

    A Singleton capo ordering staff to "focus on journalism." That is indeed, rich.
