    Just trying to lighten the mood around here a little bit. Here's an amusing Dave Barry column, no doubt ahead of its time, originally published June 10, 2001:

    Good thing I majored in journalism. Take that, English majors.

    STAFF CUTBACKS: The typical newspaper staff has been reduced to one editor, one managing editor, 14 assistant managing editors, 39 deputy assistant managing editors, and one reporter. The editors spend their days holding meetings to think of new ways to cut costs, while the reporter (who, for budgetary reasons, is not allowed to leave the building) looks out the window, in case news occurs in the parking lot.

    Why would a reporter ever have to leave the building? Don't you have telephones, email and the internet?

    I knew some people who worked for the Journal Sphincter Company.

    Things were real tight there.

    Sometimes it runs smoothly. Especially after Taco night.

    Sometimes we have a "most useless major" contest in the newsroom. Philosophy, political science and history are always among the contenders. Our reigning champ majored in ART history.

    By the way, I like the photo Armchair QB uses with his posts. But we'll save the North Side-South Side stuff for baseball season.
