    Streamline work processes = 3 people doing the jobs of 5 people.

    This story has a great quote from one of the Strib's reporter/union reps.

    Discussed a spot here a few years back. I also got the impression that the paper's commitment level was quite high then in a competitive market. The McClatchy transition has not been handled well.

    Between this and huring Subpar Ridder as Publisher.... I feel for the readers of the Strib. My parents stoipped getting it years ago and my dad is a longtime newspaper guy...

    Perhaps after the PiPress lawsuit, SubPar will be one of the cuts.

    This was on the Strib's website as a throw away in it's version....

    Also Monday, Star Tribune columnist and blogger James Lileks wrote on his personal blog that his newspaper column was being killed and he was being assigned to cover local news.

    One less reason to pick up the newspaper.

    My heart sinks everytime I hear about one of these. Hope they land on their feet and that the buyouts are big enough to keep them going until they land new gigs.
