    Did they cutback on words to describe the job, too?

    Any word on what happened to James Walker? He was pretty good in my dealings with him

    You must have something on him then. I know he ran roughshod over several people on staff and ran out one of the best prep guys in the state when he first started.

    Circ is 66,000 daily and 90,000 on Sunday. I'd think for sports editor pay would be decent, but JRC could be the wild card.

    From the ad: Circulation is 66,000 daily and 80,000 on Sunday.

    They left out: "And falling."

    OOPS. 80,000 is the correct circulation for Sunday. My bad.

    But Jelenic says circulation doesn't matter. It's all about "quality circulation."

    If that's the case, The Macomb Daily must be aiming for 10k in circulation, and they'll soon probably stop delivering to all the Macomb County trailer parks.

    How true. I've seen more inspiring classfied ads selling couches.

    And you left out: "Rapidly."

    That I did.

    Anyone who wishes can go back and see what the Mess, or for that matter, most other metro Detroit papers, reported for its circulation 5-6 years ago. Then look at today.
