    From the still-active Pipeline:


    As many of you already know, we're losing three stalwarts. Carl Nelson, Harvey Araton and Bill Rhoden have decided to take buyouts.

    No matter what I write here, it will come up way short in expressing how profound their contributions were and how deeply we'll miss them.

    (Me again - I'm told more layoffs are coming, though no idea how soon)

    Bill and Harvey are good friends and I know they put a lot of thought in their decision. God bless them on their new journey.

    The Times will miss them both. Harvey I consider a friend, and I know he'll be OK.

    Column written backward. Make your Piazza point then, if you feel the need, take on the offending column.
    However, columns written about bad columns are often worse than the bad column.

    Rhoden with a column after his retirement...and Jim Brown's retirement. Ummm... okay.

    I don't even know Jim Brown but I know that Rhoden was no Jim Brown.

    Hubris, equating his acceptance of a buyout with what Jim Brown did.

    Unless Rhoden spends his next decade slapping women around, he's no Jim Brown.
