    Ouch. That's too bad. Some good folks there. The paper has made some pretty big strides in the past decade.

    I cringe at what the sycophantic fanbois supporters of Jeff Gundy will post on that site.

    Don't you mean Mike Gundy? He is a man, you know.

    The really bad thing about this is that The Oklahoman seemed to be ahead of the pack in terms of ideas for making money on the Web. They had people paying for premium info on the Bedlam Nation site and had enough advertising money coming in on it to hire a staffer. Last I heard they landed a big advertising deal with a car dealership to launch a new version of the site.

    Guess none of that really made a difference.

    Mike Gundy isn't just a man; he's 40. Remember that.

    You mean Gundy isn't 41 yet?

    When will the bleeding stop? All of these cuts at papers across the country makes me feel extremely uneasy.
  10. Yes, he is 41. Beside the point.

    The worst part of this is that The Oklahoman is one of the few true "state papers" anymore. And they're not part of a chain. If they're making cuts, well, there is really no reason to have even the remotest hope for the business.
