    I'm sorry, shotty. It's bad news whenever anyone loses a job.

    But I don't think you or thousands of others were laid off in service of diversity.

    Launching a Cincinnati site, with Rosecrans, might end up getting my $40/year or whatever it is. Gonna check out the app.

    I paid 41.80 for a year, though I did it through a discount link Trent himself posted.

    One of our editors just left to go there and oversee their baseball vertical. Emma Span, a very talented editor. They're not messing around.

    Good for him. That's a guy who always earned his paycheck. His notes columns were terrific at ESPN. When's he gonna win the Frick award? It's overdue, IMHO.
