    A month after laying off seven people (that is where the thread title came from), it looks like he is the one that was shown the door. Found this on the Lee Enterprises Web site today. Thoughts?

    Dick High. If nothing else, he had the most appropriate name for a publisher ever.
     
  3. Polk Laffoon IV is still my favorite.

    Also knew an attorney named Guy Gay. When you looked him up in the phone book, it read "Gay Guy."

    If you ever read a quote by this guy, the former spokeshole for Knight Ridder, you'd know that was the perfect name.

    I see the new pub in North County has degrees in marketing and forestry engineering. A more qualified publisher there never was. ::)

    He's the dude whose son married Anne Heche. Word around the K-R papers was that he didn't like people to mention the fact that he had a crazy daughter-in-law who had just gotten out of a high profile relationship with another woman.
