    I know someone who works there. Hopefully things turn out well for him, and most others. (I would root for good fortune for all 1,422 employees, but we all know that's not going to happen. ::) :mad: )

    Damn, they have less than nine days to decide whether to accept the buyouts. That is not a lot of time to make a life-changing decision.
  4. Maybe it isn't a lot of time, but the offer sounds pretty good.

    2 1/2 weeks' pay for each year is OK.

    Doesn't say anything about benefits. That's where the sticking point lies for many.

    Well, at least it's at a time of the year when no one has anything else on their mind. Nice touch, U-T.

    Sounds like a new thread: The SportsJournalists.com Christmas Carol.
    But there are too many good candidates for the role of Scrooge.

    How about, "You're guaranteed to have both Christmas and New Year's Day off. This year and every year after that."

    Have you seen the list of the "excluded" positions? Includes sports columnists and the "scoreboard editor." So if you're the head agate guy, no buyout for you! Ever!
