    The money was on the end coming this week. ... maybe something's in the works? Doubtful, but you have to look for a ray of sunshine anytime you can in today's business.

    So... You think the news will be bad?

    This sucks...

    Find any ray of light you can.

    Good luck to everyone out there. It's not a fun situation. At all.

    If Hearst is already offering positions for the online-only operation, the news can't be anything other than bad, can it?

    That's been the expectation all along. Sad to say, but there just isn't good news anymore when it comes to these kinds of things.

    Shredding bins and cardboard boxes have arrived in the P-I newsroom -- doesn't exactly seem like the action of a company that's weighing options, does it?

    And the great irony is that employees were asked in an email to "be prudent in your usage" of the packing boxes. Can't have the laid off staff just using cardboard boxes willy nilly while collecting the remains of their careers!

    Just to stick it to 'em, AB, be sure to use the company printer for your own personal documents, too!

    Did they put up this sign as well?

    Allow me to be the first to offer an upper deck suggestion, though it's probably impossible on workplace commodes.

    Or maybe upper deck one of the copiers.

    Could I have some cardboard boxes, preferably shipped inside a cardboard box?

    Obviously they're worried you'll make forts out of them.

    Please do all you can to make this process easier on the Hearst Corporation.
