    That's strangely worded, eh? Maybe they got burned in the past by some sneaky Canadian

    Hate to be THAT guy, but that's not what's strange.
    What's strange is a Gannett paper hiring.
    What's strange is THIS Gannett paper hiring after just getting a new SE. Did someone leave?

    Advertiser' institution Hugh Owen dies

    February 7, 2009

    Services have been set for Hugh S. Owen III, a respected journalist at the Montgomery Advertiser for nearly four decades.

    Owen died early this week at his home in Montgomery. He was 61.

    A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Sunset Memorial Gardens near Geneva, where he grew up.

    Owen was a graduate of Geneva High School, where he was an athlete and standout baseball player. Hugh Owen Stadium in Geneva is named after his father.

    Owen graduated from Auburn University with a degree in journalism in 1970, and in 1971 began his career at the Montgomery Advertiser-Alabama Journal. During his nearly four decades at the newspaper, he was known for his sharp wit, strong work ethic and attention to detail.

    He was a columnist, sports editor, copy editor and page designer at various times throughout his career. He worked primarily in sports, which was one of his passions.

    Yikes. What's the proper grace period for posting a deceased employee's job? I'm asking because I have no idea, and my first reaction was to find this a bit tacky.

    Well, that's a good question, but most of the time, employers get at least a two-week notice. Obviously, they didn't get any notice, so I'm sure they have to move even faster, tacky or not.

    Walt, it may be tacky but life does go on. The paper is still going to publish. It's cold but it is what it is. There's really no way to sugar coat reality.
