    They "expect ... unexpected enterprise?" That is a neat trick ...

    Anybody have any insight on this one? Hiring from within, looking outside? Note: I am not interested in the job, but have an interest in what happens. Thanks!

    Filled internally. Mike Vandermause was demoted from SE/Columnist to beat writer.

    Very interesting. Mike traveled with the team, so maybe it's something he wanted. Interesting, nonetheless.

    I can't imagine he wanted to take a pay cut and be demoted, but it's far better than being let go.

    That's true. Less pay is better than no pay.

    So true.

    Papers would be far better off if they offered this to people rather than just let people go. I know it isn't always an option.
