    The sports editor resigned Friday with the plan to stay until replacement could be found or end of year. they told him to get lost the same day the resignation letter was submitted. There was some friction between a couple younger members of the staff and the SE, and word is that management was little help.

    The SE was a good guy in a bad situation. He's due for a bit of good karma.

    He was shown the door upon submitting a letter. From what I understand he wasn't planning to be unemployed the same day.
