    Hi!!!

    So my paper has gone through around of buy outs and layoffs in the past year and I was one of the lucky ones to survive, but I am wondering now how lucky I really was. Rumors have it that there are more trim backs coming very soon!!! It is very depressing and makes me wonder if I will be able to retire as a newspaper woman down the road. Do you think there will be news papers in 25 years?? I don't think I do. That is just so very sad to me.

    I am just ill that so many quality journalists are being sent packing, you have to wonder when the axe will fall on you also. I have heard that MacClatchy is going to announce major staffing news next week, probably Monday or tuesday at a several different papers. I hope it is not too terribly bad!!!

    Get rid of the extra exclamation marks and question marks -- they cost ink and newsprint.

    We need to be lean and mean in these tough times!

    I work for McClatchy and I haven't heard this latest buzz ... perhaps my rag will be OK.

    Oh, and by the way ... Yay, a Pickle_Juice thread!

    Or possibly even lame.

    Return of a sock puppet. How thrilling.

    I do not appreciate your attitude coffee man. No body likes being called a 'Sock puppet'. I do not even know what you mean by that!!!

    Is anyone else depressed about the state of newspapering?? I do not want to see another coworker get laid off!!!

    Perfectly timed, given how much we all need a laugh.

    I guess you think you are really very funny but you're not!!!

    And jersey guy, are you named that because you are from New Jersey or because you really like sports jerseys???

    Sorry, I guess that I thought I was not the only one depressed about newspapering in this day in age.
